AUDIENCE: K-6 TEACHERS, CURRICULUM LEADERS, LEARNING COACHES AND SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND.
Math Running Records is an assessment system that helps us to unpack the basic fact fluency levels of k-6 learners. It is used to get evidence about where students are stuck and then plan a developmentally appropriate trajectory. It is the GPS of fluency, being used in several states and a few countries. Math Running Records help teachers learn the developmental trajectories for teaching basic facts. They also track student progress along the micro-progression of basic facts which helps students to achieve fluency in a deliberate, organized way. In this workshop, Dr. Nicki will help you learn everything you need to know about effectively implementing them. Through videos and discussion, this workshop explains what they are, how to administer and analyze and use them to improve student achievement. Come and learn how to get and use actionable fluency data today!
