As students return to a hopefully more typical school year, learning is likely to be anything but typical. Student and teacher experiences over the past 18 months have varied greatly and classrooms are filled with students representing a wider range of learning needs than ever before. The challenge for teachers is to help each student move their mathematics learning forward. While it will take time for most students to return to typical “on-grade-level” expectations, we must support students to move forward rather than picking up instruction where “regular school” left off in March 2020. Responding to this wide range of learners is part of the job in education; the pandemic has made this part of the work more prominent in many classrooms.
In this first edWebinar of a two-part series, Sara Delano Moore, Ph.D. will illustrate the interconnection of two important ideas for long-term mathematics success: spaced practice and accelerated learning. Spaced practice gives the brain time to forget, to remember, and to consolidate learning. These steps are the foundation for long-term encoding and retrieval. Accelerated learning brings ideas from past learning forward on a “just-in-time” basis. Using the progression from basic facts to more fluent computation, the examples that will be discussed show how to help students learn content they might not know from prior years by emphasizing the connection to current learning. Join Sara to explore instructional sequences and strategies for supporting every learner while emphasizing current content.
This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers and school and district leaders at the elementary level.
