Description:
Course Description:
This 8-day learning opportunity is designed for classroom, special education and mathematics intervention teachers of students in Grades K-2. Participants will engage in varied instructional strategies, and will acquire tools to assess, support, and advance students' mathematical reasoning and knowledge. Aligned to research-based teaching practices and KAS, topics will include counting and cardinality, number and operations, early algebraic reasoning, conceptual place value, measurement and data, and math/literature connections. Participants will receive books, activities and instructional materials, along with assessment strategies to identify and target student needs and misconceptions in early numeracy.
NOTE: All sessions in 2020 will meet virtually; sessions beginning January 2021 may be virtual or meet in-person based on current health/safety recommendations.
