Teaching on the Edge of Understanding and at the Speed of Learning

Oct. 11, 2022, 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Grant Wood AEA 4401 Sixth St. SW, Cedar Rapids, Iowa

There are many things to consider when we engage students in mathematics. What makes our task extremely difficult is that we teach a specific age of students that function and think in multiple grade levels. This makes differentiation seem impossible but it doesn’t need to always feel this way. Let’s explore how the purposeful use and sequence of the right tasks can unlock what students know and inform our next move in the progression of learning.

This workshop is intended for educators who support K-3rd grade students. Participants are expected to participate fully.

TARGET AUDIENCE: Elementary Instructional Coaches, Special Education Consultants, Teachers

The Power of Progressions: Untangling the Knotty Areas of Teaching and Learning Fractions

Oct. 12, 2022, 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Grant Wood AEA 4401 Sixth St. SW, Cedar Rapids, Iowa
As more teachers look to add high-yield tasks to their repertoire, the struggle to make it all work becomes real. Let’s examine how problem-based lessons can be used throughout the scope of a unit and how we can harness their power to move student thinking forward. We’ll identify strategies and explore some tasks that help us find a healthy balance between application, conceptual understanding, and procedural fluency. This workshop is intended for educators who support students in grades 3-8 (*focus on grades 3-6 fraction standards).
