Virtual PD Day on November 7th

Reimagine your Math Teaching & Learning

– Registration Closed –

A VIRTUAL PD day of offerings for NYC DoE math educators.

Overview:

Morning Sessions
9:30 - 11:00 EST

How do we ensure all students learn to the highest levels?

One way is to effectively use assessment to understand students’ development and then target students’ specific learning needs directly. To do this, teachers need to have a range of assessment tools that can help them gather the most information about student development in the shortest amount of time possible. In this 90 minute session, we will share a variety of assessment strategies for K-2 teachers to use to help them plan effective instruction.

How do educators create vibrant learning environments, ones in which student ideas are shared and explored and where children feel empowered to raise questions and debate each other’s thinking?

In this 90-minute session, we will explore specific pedagogical techniques that teachers can use to foster a collaborative community in which student talk is central to learning.

Afternoon Sessions
1:00 - 2:30 EST

Effective teaching starts with effective planning.

But what goes into planning an effective lesson? In this 90-minute session, teachers will have the opportunity to delve into lesson design using a core planning tool The Guide to Core Issues. Here, the big questions about the what, why, who and how of lesson design will be discussed.

To have mathematical power, students need to have a wide range of problem-solving strategies.

These strategies can be named and developed using carefully designed 10-minute math routines. In this session, participants will have the opportunity to learn about techniques they can use to develop critical problem-solving strategies in their own classrooms.

How to Use On-Going Math Assessment to Maximize ALL Students’ Learning

– Registration Closed – 

How do we ensure all students learn to the highest levels?

One way is to effectively use assessment to understand students’ development and then target students’ specific learning needs directly. To do this, teachers need to have a range of assessment tools that can help them gather the most information about student development in the shortest amount of time possible. In this 90 minute session, we will share a variety of assessment strategies for K-2 teachers to use to help them plan effective instruction.
  • A variety of assessment tools. This includes a sampling of one-on-one interviews and specific conferring techniques that will help them maximize the information they gather as they interact with students.
  • Video of conferences. Transcripts of video shared will be used to highlight key assessment techniques.
  • One-on-one interviews to use with their students.
  • Specific conferring tools to help them quickly gather information about students’ mathematical understanding.

Six Teaching Moves to Create Vibrant Discussions

– Registration Closed – 

How do educators create vibrant learning environments, ones in which student ideas are shared and explored and where children feel empowered to raise questions and debate each other’s thinking?

In this 90-minute session, we will explore specific pedagogical techniques that teachers can use to foster a collaborative community in which student talk is central to learning.
  • A variety of research-based pedagogical moves to develop student discourse.
  • Video of classroom talk. Here, transcripts of video will be used to highlight and name specific moves teachers are using and how these impact student talk and learning.
  • Specific talk moves they can use in their own teaching.
  • Reference materials for future reading on the topic of how to create rich classroom discussions.

Essentials for Planning a Successful Math Lesson

– Registration Closed – 

Effective teaching starts with effective planning. But what goes into planning an effective lesson?

In this 90-minute session, teachers will have the opportunity to delve into lesson design using a core planning tool The Guide to Core Issues. Here, the big questions about the what, why, who and how of lesson design will be discussed.
  • Specific lessons to think about how to unpack the mathematical goals of the lesson and determine how to structure the lesson to meet the needs of all students.
  • How to design the lesson; this will include how to introduce a lesson, how to structure student work time (whether individual or in partnerships), and the role of the math share and how they can use it to support and deepen student reasoning and communication skills.
  • Specific planning tools to help them in planning their own lessons in the future.
  • Examples of mathematical learning trajectories and how to use these critical learning pathways in lesson design.

Grades K-2

10-Minute Routines to Develop Problem-Solving Strategies

– Registration Closed – 

To have mathematical power, students need to have a wide range of problem-solving strategies.

These strategies can be named and developed using carefully designed 10-minute math routines. In this session, participants will have the opportunity to learn about techniques they can use to develop critical problem-solving strategies in their own classrooms.
  • Their own problem-solving strategies as they explore a variety of 10-minute math routines.
  • The essential techniques needed to effectively use these routines in their own classrooms.
  • How to differentiate these routines so that all students have access to them.
  • A variety of different 10-minute math routines they can use in their classrooms.
  • Specific pedagogical tools that will help them think about how to effectively implement these routines in their classrooms.
