Master mathematics within the PLC framework
Creating mathematical tasks, designing lessons, delivering interventions, and writing and grading assessments and homework 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 interactive 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:
Reflect upon current mathematics content, routines, and practices and evaluate their quality against research-affirmed criteria.
Refine and update current mathematics content, routines, and practices for improved student learning on a unit-by-unit basis on research-affirmed criteria.
Act to ensure mathematics tasks, lesson design, and homework and grading routines engage students, empower them to persevere, and inspire 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.
- Create higher-level-cognitive-demand tasks for current standards of instruction.
- 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.
