Grades 6-8: Developing Mathematical Habits of Mind: Powerful Routines

Type of PD: 1-Day Institute 
Institute Dates: 11/3/17
Location: FDA, M- Frederick Douglass Academy (05M499), 2581 Adam Clayton Powell Jr Blvd, 
                 New York, NY 10039
Time: 8:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (1 hour lunch break included) 

Cost: $275 per person
Who should attend: All Math Educators Grades 6-8, including Teachers, Special Education Teachers, and Coaches in the grade levels.

*This institute is also listed in the categories Mathematical Routines, Secondary Institutes, & Teaching Learning Communities.

This institute goes to the heart of the aspects of teaching mathematics that many secondary educators find challenging. Specifically teaching students who:

  • Have not developed the mathematical habits of mind and dispositions necessary to engage in mathematics.
  • Are lacking number sense and seem to have gaps in their understanding of mathematical content.
  • Appear to be unmotivated and disengaged.

This session will give participants an opportunity to explore:

  • Common Core Standards Mathematical Practices through mathematics/thinking routines.
  • Techniques for increasing student engagement.
  • Using mathematical models that give all students access to challenging content.
  • How to fill in gaps while, at the same time, giving students the tools they need to move forward in mathematics.

Participants will leave with:

  • A clearer understanding of why students disengage, and a set of specific strategies to get them back on track.
  • A toolkit of routines and mathematical models they can implement in their own classrooms.

Participants of this institute have the option of attending a 2-day follow-up Teaching Learning Community, which offers educators a chance to get together across schools to design, enact, and reflect on routines in secondary mathematics classrooms.
