Time: 8:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (1 hour lunch break included)
Cost: $750 per person
Who should attend: All Math Educators Grades K-3, including Teachers, Special Education Teachers, and Coaches in the grade levels.
Three sessions give educators in Grades K-3 an opportunity to explore:
- Their own mathematical content knowledge and problem-solving habits of mind.
- The Landscape of Learning, which is comprised of the foundational big ideas in addition and their relationship to subtraction.
- How to use one-on-one clinical interviews to assess student development.
- How to plan rigorous, developmentally appropriate learning experiences.
- The role of mathematical models (e.g., the bead string and the open number line), as required by the CCSS.
- How to incorporate the CCSS Mathematical Practices through talk moves.
- Assessment tools to track student learning in addition and subtraction.
- Video examples of key lessons in addition and subtraction.
Participants will leave with:
- A clear understanding of the Landscape of Learning (a developmental trajectory to help educators assess student reasoning in number).
- A repertoire of rich tasks that can be used to differentiate learning.
- One-on-one interviews and other assessments to assess student understanding of addition and subtraction.
