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 second edWebinar of a two-part series, Sara Delano Moore, Ph.D. shares tasks and strategies for continuing to emphasize the mathematical practice and process standards while teaching grade-appropriate content. More open-ended tasks provide opportunities for students to apply mathematics in a variety of settings and develop their skills around representing mathematical ideas and arguments. These tasks also provide contexts for the accelerated learning introduced in part one of the series. Join Sara to explore instructional strategies and tasks to develop the practices while emphasizing current content.
This recorded edWebinar is of interest to teachers and school and district leaders at the elementary level.
