TARGET AUDIENCE: GRADES 10-12 MATH TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS, AND COACHES ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND
Rich tasks, collaborative work, number talks, problem-based learning, direct instruction…with so many possible approaches, how do we know which ones work the best? In Visible Learning for Mathematics, six acclaimed educators assert it’s not about which one—it’s about when—and show you how to design high-impact instruction so all students demonstrate more than a year’s worth of mathematics learning for a year spent in school.
Our Math Collaborative Communities will parallel the conversations and content shared in the Visible Learning for Mathematics series (separate registration at, https://www.crcpd.ab.ca/program/1465). You are welcome to register for both the Visible Learning in Math series, as well as the Math Collaborative Community, and you are also welcome to choose only the Math Collaborative Community (we will share the highlights with you in our discussions).
With our division 4 colleagues, we will meet 3 times over the school year to dig deeper into the content of Visible Learning for Mathematics, and to share and collaborate with each other. We will also all have access to an ongoing eCommunity where we can continue to share experiences, ideas and resources over the entire school year (membership in this eCommunity is automatically included).
This learning opportunity is being offered through curriculum implementation funding from Alberta Education.
