Professional Development Opportunities

Tuesday, July 5 to Friday, July 8
8:30 AM to 3:30 PM

Course Description
This course is designed for mathematics coaches, math teacher leaders, and instructional leaders. This course is based on current research which explores ideas for making change in effective teaching practices. It is intended as a venue to give existing coaches a deeper understanding of the ideas and skills necessary to support classroom teachers and to introduce them to organizational schemes that will help move their schools forward. These sessions will include a mix of opportunities to gain new learning about math teaching and learning for all students and to create tools that will enhance their roles as coaches.

Course Description
Launch (often a Number Talk or short problem) is the first component of the All Learners Network lesson approach. This workshop was created in response to a large number of requests from participants about practices that support the early part of the lesson. This includes Number Talks, various math circle activities, and the use of programs to the development of strong number sense. The purpose of this workshop is to inspire participants to reimagine how they use the first five to fifteen minutes of their math block for purposeful, discussion-rich number sense routines in their classroom. Launch is the vehicle for powerful instructional routines which are amplified through consistent exposure over time. Through intentional problem selection teachers encourage students to own the conversation and their learning.

Course Description
"Teaching math so everyone can learn" This 3-credit graduate course focuses on the principles of teaching for equity and the closing of instructional gaps. The All Learners Network uses five key components to help math leaders and, ultimately, teachers, support all students to be successful in mathematics: High Leverage Concepts, All Learners Lesson Structure, training for instructional leaders to facilitate student growth, a rapid cycle of inquiry, and formative assessment forming instruction. This course will teach educators to use these effective strategies to help all children learn math.

This is a course for classroom teachers, special educators, administrators and math specialists focused on pedagogical strategies to use for teaching all children that create equity for those children who chronically struggle with mathematics. It is designed to help Special Educators and classroom teachers meet HQT requirements.

Tuesday, June 28, and Wednesday, June 29
9:00 AM to 3:30 PM

Course Description
Spend two days immersed in hands-on, problem-based middle school mathematics. This workshop will spend time unpacking the learning progressions of the High Leverage Concepts, diving into hands-on techniques to engage middle school students, and practicing techniques to encourage your students to do the heavy lifting of making sense of the math they are learning. Other ideas that will be included are creating routines in the mathematics classroom, such as Making Thinking Visible (Ron Ritchhhart) and integrating Number Talks (Ruth Parker) into your weekly plans which will support your ability to be responsive to the needs of the students in your classroom. Plan to leave this workshop with concrete ideas to integrate into your teaching right away.
