In this edWebinar, we share strategies for creating learning opportunities for your math students. With this, we can be deliberate about how we vary the numbers we use in problems; use “in the moment” scaffolding with students; and leverage contexts that are familiar to students, such as fair sharing. Watch this edWebinar to see examples of these instructional strategies in action and learn how to apply them in your own classroom.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to kindergarten through junior high school teachers and school and district leaders.
