Making Sense of mathematical Algorithms [ + - x ÷ ] (grades 2-6)
Mathematics
Details
Expand

“Standard” algorithms add efficiency to pencil and paper computations. In this workshop we discuss the procedural versus conceptual understanding of how and why the algorithms work and explore the best practices in teaching addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division algorithms.

Measure it Up! (grade K-5)
Mathematics
Details
Expand

We tend to focus on teaching how to measure rather than what it means to measure. In this workshop, we discuss the big ideas in Measurement concepts and explore instructional strategies that help develop a conceptual knowledge of measuring. (Grades k-5)

Modeling in Mathematics (grades K-8)
Mathematics
Details

Models help us make sense of the world around us and when students learn to model a real-life situation they are on their way to becoming better problem solvers. In this workshop we examine modeling as a powerful tool to promote conceptual understanding and explore how it can be used to represent and make sense of information in problem solving situations.

Utilizing Inq-ITS to measure student competencies and plan
Science
Details
Expand

Description: Inq-ITS is an online educational environment for science. Inq-ITS puts students in control of their own learning by leading an authentic inquiry experience through our NGSS-aligned virtual labs. As students work, Inq-ITS uses patented algorithms that automatically assess students and generate real-time reports on classroom-wide and student-specific performance for educators. Teachers also receive real-time alerts as to which students need assistance and on what skills. Rex, an AI virtual tutor, can also help students in real-time as they move through the virtual labs.  The distinctive design behind Inq-ITS provides necessary resources for teacher instruction and assessment, and for student education on critical science and learning skills.

Journal Writing in Mathematics Classroom (grades 3-8)
Mathematics
Details
Expand

To think critically and be a good problem solver in mathematics, students must be able to organize and consolidate their thinking.  Explore how keeping a math journal could not only provide the students with the opportunity to look back and reflect on the knowledge they have acquired but also serve as an assessment tool for the teacher to identify misconceptions and gaps in understanding.

Developing science practices in the classroom
Science
Details
Expand

‘Three-dimensional lessons’ is certainly a buzz-term, but how can we help students practice and develop these critical thinking skills. In this workshop we will examine the Science Practices, break up the practices into their assessable sub-practices, discuss how to assess where students are at, remediate, and monitor student progress. Contact us if the date/time does not work for you and we will work with you to schedule the session.

Scaffolding for Student Success at Asking Questions
Science
Details
Expand

We know that Asking Questions is so much more than making an educated guess, but how do we help students to hone this difficult skill? In this workshop we will examine the sub-practices that make up the Science Practice “Asking Questions”, discuss how to assess where students are at, and scaffold for student success. Contact us if the date/time does not work for you and we will work with you to schedule the session.

Struggles with Fractions _ Session #2
Mathematics
Details
Expand

A lack of a deep conceptual understanding of fractions at the elementary level can be a serious impediment to high school math achievements. Through problem solving activities, these workshops aim to examine the stumbling blocks in teaching and learning of fractions and provide the participants with fresh new ideas to take back to their classroom.

In this workshop we continue with activities that promote fractional number sense as we discuss equivalency, comparison, addition, and subtraction of fractions.

This workshop could be beneficial to all teachers in grades 3-6.
