Event description

Description

The focus of this two-day workshop will be implementing Singapore's problem-solving approach to instruction, and differentiating problems and tasks to meet the needs of our increasingly diverse classrooms. We have asked Dr. Yeap to spend extra time on Bar Modeling and other visual representations of problems to help our students bridge their thinking between the concrete and the abstract.


Dr. Yeap, in his usual relaxed and entertaining style, will model instruction, and connect instructional practice to solid education research. He does all of this in a way that allows his students to not only learn but to apply what they have learned immediately. He will use a variety of K5 mathematical tasks, including many from Math in Focus, Singapore Mathematics Primary Series, Smarter Balance Assessment items and the Common Core State Standards.

Learning Objectives:

  • Developing meaningful Anchor Tasks to drive instruction preparing engaging and highly effective lessons

  • Preparing engaging and highly effective lessons

  • Designing and delivering lessons that allow for remediation and enrichment

  • Using questioning practices that facilitate student accessibility and engagement

  • Using bar models to simplify problems, deepen understanding and bridge to abstract concepts
