This professional learning experience focuses on supporting students who are at risk or identified as having mathematical difficulties in the middle and high school grades. Participants will explore questions such as:
1) How do you create more engagement in the mathematical tasks?
2) How can you develop deeper learning to reduce reteaching?
3) What strategies can be used to adapt tasks to be accessible to a diverse range of learners?
Attendees will investigate effective, research-based, and classroom-ready tasks and strategies to enhance mathematical understanding in algebra, rational number, and geometry topics.
Note: Please bring your current math curriculum materials.
Target Audience: Middle School/Junior High and High School AEA Education Consultants, Instructional Coaches, Special Education Consultants, Teachers.
