Teaching on the Edge of Understanding and at the Speed of Learning
November 10, 2021 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Waterfront Hotel and Convention Center, Oshkosh, Wisconsin
About This Program:
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.
Engage in grade-appropriate problem-based lessons (PBL) and understand how the implementation of low-entry, high-scalability tasks can be used to reach all students.
Explore the use of problem-based as regular practice. Participants will identify when and how these lessons can be used throughout the scope of a unit.
Understand how problem-based lessons can be used within the instructional framework (opening, work session, close), and the purposeful moves required to orchestrate an effective closing session.
Identify ways in which problem-based lessons can be used as formative assessment to monitor student growth.
Connect conceptual learning and application, and the role they play in modeling with mathematics.
About our Presenter:
Graham Fletcher has served in education as a classroom teacher, math instructional lead, and currently as a math specialist. Graham's work with the math progressions and problem-based lessons has led him to present throughout North America and beyond.
He is continally advocating for best practice in elementary mathematics by seeking new and innovative ways to support students and teachers in their development of conceptual understanding. He is the author of Building Fact Fluency: A Toolkit for Addition and Subtraction.
