 Sponsors session #1

April 21, 2021 Session #1 Selecting High-Quality Math Tasks 

Student learning is directly related to the quality of the math task used for instruction. This session examines characteristics of high-quality math tasks in elementary grades and it shares strategies for modifying lower-quality math tasks. The session also provides administrators with strategies and discussion tools for walkthroughs, pre-observation, and post-observation conferences.

 

May 12, 2021: Session #2 Productive Struggle

Struggle is more than a catchphrase or a poster hung in the classroom. Struggle is about intentional actions. This session unpacks six actions for productive struggle. The session helps administrators identify what these actions look like in practice and how they can help support those actions in their teachers.

May 19, 2021: Session #3 Using Evidence of Student Understanding

The value of data is obvious. But understanding our students’ thinking and making decisions with that evidence – on a daily basis – looks much different than a monthly or quarterly data conversation. This session examines a process for soliciting and using evidence of student understanding. It looks closely at having the right task for gathering evidence, interpreting evidence, identifying next steps, and giving feedback. It prompts the leader to think about how the school uses evidence of student thinking.

May 26, 2021: Session #4  Figuring Out Fluency

Fluency goes beyond basic facts and algorithms. It is at the heart of doing mathematics and access to quality fluency instruction is matter of access and equity in teaching and learning mathematics. The session helps administrators identify what high-quality fluency instruction is and what it isn’t. The session also features guidance for practicing and assessing all aspects of fluency.
