Event Details

Facilitated by: John Allenbach, MTLD

Recommended for: All 5th- 12th grade math teachers

By the end of this session you will:

  • Infuse urgency and purpose into the opening of your math block.

In your classroom, you will see:

  • Kids developing problem solving, mental math, and computational fluency skills, all in 20 minutes.

Description: Research shows that kids learn the most in the first 20 minutes and the last 20 minutes of a class period. As a teacher, I used most of my first twenty minutes getting kids in seats, taking attendance, and giving and reviewing a low-rigor Do Now. This is a waste of the highest impact time we have with kids; we can do better. In this session, you will learn strategies to maximize this time by using your Do Now to emphasize problem solving, introducing Oral Drill to increase investment and mental math, and using a fluency check to gather data on your kids’ more basic math skills.

Date/Time: Wednesday, December 4th 6:30 pm -8:30 pm
