Mathematics at Work™: Best Practices for Teams Workshop

San Antonio, Texas | November 28–29, 2023

Master mathematics within the PLC framework

Tasks, lessons, assessments, homework, interventions, and grading all have the power to improve—or diminish—student learning in mathematics. By working collaboratively within the PLC at Work® process, teacher teams can ensure each of these elements promotes equitable teaching and learning experiences and supports students in achieving proficiency.

This in-person K–12 workshop is led by internationally acclaimed experts with decades of firsthand experience teaching mathematics. As active participants, educators will learn how to function in collaborative teams to:

  1. Reflect upon current mathematics content, routines, and practices and evaluate their quality against research-affirmed criteria
  2. Refine and update current mathematics content, routines, and practices for improved student learning on a unit-by-unit basis
  3. Act to ensure improvements to content, routines, and practices engage students, empower them to persevere, and motivate them to own their learning
  • Examine six team actions and two coaching actions collaborative teams use to ensure every student learns mathematics.
  • Explore tools, protocols, and tasks to grow a deeper understanding of how intentional lesson design impacts student learning at all levels.
  • Learn how to design and deliver research‐affirmed mathematics lessons using a formative assessment and feedback process.
  • Acquire strategies for designing effective common assessments and providing targeted interventions.
  • Address the design and use of homework as an integral part of student motivation and engagement in learning mathematics.

“I am ready to meet with the teams in my school and develop their skills in the area of looking, analyzing, and making decisions in the best interest of the student.”

Kathryn Zanin, teacher, Tucson Unified School District, Arizona

“In the past, I’ve focused generically on teaching and learning, and the presenter really broke that down to include increased focus and urgency for assessment. I’d started down that path, but this session really helped my thinking and planning.”

Mandy Ross, superintendent, Ames Community School District, Iowa

“I loved the presenter’s energy, positive yet realistic tone, and sense of humor.”
