This event is two 4-hour sessions (June 14 and 22)
Grades 6-8- Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Integrated Math I, II or III mathematics teachers and (math) intervention specialist.
This pedagogy and content workshop expands participants’ capacities to meet the mathematics needs of their students through differentiated instruction. Using participating teachers’ current differentiation conceptions and classrooms as learning spaces, the course motivates participants to implement strategies and theory, explore and discuss the impact to student learning, and reflect on the consequences to their instruction. Connections are explored within and across 6th-11th grade content. Specific content domains include Expressions and Equations, Functions, Algebra, Geometry, Statistics and Probability.
Workshop Activities Include:
(1) examination of differentiation frameworks and strategies (e.g., Universal Design for Learning [UDL], Response to Intervention [RTI], tiered assignments), (2) creation, implementation, and evaluation of problems, tasks, activities, and assessments designed to help develop and evaluate students’ mathematics understandings, processes, and skills.
After the sessions:
- Teachers can receive 25 hours of instruction time (CEU certificate) by engaging in an additional 18 hours of synchronous online live sessions for $432 (paid to Kent State University)
- Teachers can receive 2-graduate level workshop credits by engaging in an additional 18 hours of synchronous online live sessions for $756 (paid to Kent State University).
