This two-day course will focus on grades 6-8.
This professional learning experience will provide an opportunity to share thoughts, experiences and ideas with other teachers and interested educators while experiencing a school-wide culture of learning. The experience will include the opportunity to observe students as active learners in problem-centered mathematics lessons across grade levels and discuss the potential of such les-sons for deep student learning. Debriefing discussions will focus on how and why different schools might implement effective mathematics lessons structured around rich mathematics problems. In addition, you will have the opportunity to (i) participate in discussions of the co-planning pro-cess that led to the observed lessons, (ii) involve other colleague(s) at your school in your own co-planning process to design a problem centered mathematics lesson intended to help students make sense of math concepts and (iii) share and discuss your experience with other participants.

COST: FREE
AUDIENCE: Middle school teachers, teacher leaders, coaches, administrators
