Attend both days or select the one that best fits your schedule and needs.
Day 1: Intro to Workshop Teaching in Math with Ryan Flessner
Think about math as an inquiry based study, understanding the math that students are asked to do and how it connects to our everyday experiences. Learn more about the "balanced math" framework that many teachers are using in their classrooms. Learn how to move from procedural understandings to conceptual understandings.
Day 2: The First 20 Days with Courtney Flessner
You know the first days of school set the tone and expectations for the year. What does that mean for your math workshop? How will you establish routines, communicate your expectations of students and perhaps even signal to them that this year's math class may be unlike any other they've seen? Can you keep students who loved last year's math class excited while winning over those who have been disconnected? Yes, you can!
