PRACTICES IN ACTION
Come and learn from some of Idaho’s most effective teachers of mathematics as they share practices and ideas they have used to promote students’ understanding and Idaho’s Core Standards. Presentations from classroom teachers and regional mathematics specialists will be focused on specific grade level content and pedagogy (K-5, 6-8, and 9-12) in this two-day professional development opportunity. Learn new ideas, network with fellow teachers, and hear nationally recognized mathematics educator, Phil Daro speak about practices in action.
Wavelength, Inc., will return by popular demand to present "Standards...and Deliver!" on Wednesday, July 30.
"Wavelength provided all the sidesplitting fun anyone could want! Their humor was so appropriate because it was all something to which we, as educators, could relate." --Alan Dunn, Ed.S., Superintendent Sugar Salem School District #322
