Event description

Description

Are you interested in:

  • Improving that math instruction at your school?
  • Learning the elements necessary for creating a true culture of learning in math classrooms?
  • Observing a math class focused on reasoning, big ideas and academic discourse?

If you are an elementary or middle school administrator or curriculum specialist, we invite you to join us on Thursday, January 11, 2018 from 8:00 - 12:00 for a unique professional development opportunity. Our mathematics program provides students with an experience that builds deep understanding of big ideas, a positive identity, and strong number reasoning skills, while constantly leaning on practices that promote growth of critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity.


Schedule:

8:00 We will introduce you to the work that can happen in a classroom to support concept-rich instruction. We'll introduce you to a number of practices that promote critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication in mathematis. In addition, we will talk about classroom culture, coaching into partner talk, teaching students to approach mathematics through reasoning, and supporting students in continuously seeking and analyzing proof and justification. We will take you through a progression of a concept and show how it can progress across the different number types, all the way to a generalized understanding (i.e. algebraic understanding), and what language to use to support stronger conceptual development.


9:30 We will use one of our classrooms as a lab site in which we will model a high-level number reasoning routine, a deductive lesson, studio time and public presentation.


11:30 We will conclude with a debrief of the math experience and how we begin our work with teachers.
