Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching Grade K–Algebra 1 Workshop

Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching Grade K–Algebra 1 Workshop

USD$669.00
 

Teachers are expected to teach in ways they were not taught. How does the cycle get reset?

Build a solid foundation of content knowledge for teaching mathematics and ultimately to extend that knowledge to students through the implementation of the TQE Process (from the Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching series, led by Dixon, Nolan, & Adams et al., 2016).

Benefit from authentic classroom videos created to help all participants—teachers, coaches, administrators, and district leaders—develop a common vision to support students making sense of good tasks and asking good questions to collect evidence of students’ understandings and common errors.

Participants are encouraged to attend as a team. District teams will benefit from the opportunity for elementary and secondary teams to drill down into their own standards-based work, while ensuring alignment of content and processes throughout the grade bands. Team time will be provided throughout the workshop. Individuals attending the workshop will be connected with those in similar roles to enhance conversations.

Participants will:

  • Explore the mathematics they teach as learners first, and then transition this understanding to teaching through the TQE Process
  • Make sense of mathematics for teaching within specific grade bands
  • Create a shared image of effective instruction based on rigorous standards
  • Plan for use of the TQE Process in their classroom, school, or district
  • Walk away with a plan for improving fact fluency and number sense in the elementary grades
  • Make sense of early experiences leading to success in algebra
  • Develop clarity regarding what to “look for” in mathematics-specific classrooms, from an administrator’s point of view
  • Identify progressions across grades, to enhance efforts for intervention to promote the success of each and every student
  • Acquire strategies for motivating and challenging gifted learners

“Opened my eyes to using different strategies other than what I already use”

Frank Galvan, teacher, Norwalk-La Mirada USD, California

“Juli was a great ball of energy who held the focus of an entire room of tired educators. That is not an easy task. I learned more than I ever thought I would from this keynote. She made me challenge myself, both academically and emotionally. She made me think of math differently from a teacher and student aspect.”

Lorin Berger, teacher, Westbrooke Elementary School, California

“I am not a math person, so I really appreciated the way that Dr. Dixon was able to use multiple examples to demonstrate the concept at various levels and ages.”

Tim Crawley, assistant superintendent, Neosho R-5 School District, Missouri
