Event description
FDRESA is excited to offer the two foundational pieces for any mathematics teacher in a one day workshop.

About this Event

Six Elements of an Effective Mathematics Lesson is a research-based framework for lesson design. Number Talks is designed to promote fluency and mathematical literacy. Participants in this workshop will receive two hours of instruction on implementing Six Elements of an Effective Mathematics Lesson and two hour of instruction on implementing Number Talks.

Six Elements of an Effective Mathematics Lesson- If students are to exhibit long term learning and maximize performance on state assessments in mathematics, they require classroom instruction that provides the type of opportunities that increase that probability. The Six Elements of an Effective Mathematics Lesson Framework provides a template for planning and delivering instruction that include all of the necessary opportunities on a daily basis to improve both learning and achievement in mathematics. In this professional learning opportunity, teachers will identify the elements and consider planning and delivery examples.

Number Talks- This intervention is designed to support implementation of Georgia Standards of Excellence for mathematics, improve student achievement in mathematics, and enhance mathematics instruction through appropriate strategies and tools. Our goal for the intervention is to model “teaching with high expectations and intent for all students to learn.” This component builds on the foundations provided in “Six Essential Elements of Effective Mathematics Lessons.”

The intent of Number Talks is to enhance number sense and fluency through purposefully crafted problems designed to elicit specific responses, provide opportunities for students to explain and justify their mathematical thinking to better prepare students for the Georgia Milestones, and to develop strategies for problem solving.
