Engage in in-depth learning and get a jump-start to your networking at a preconference workshop. Workshop registration is open to all registered conference attendees and requires a separate fee. Two half-day workshops are being offered in Chicago. Preregistration is required.
9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Audience: Grades 2 – 5
Games provide elementary students (grades 2-5) who struggle with ways to capture their interest and engagement while enhancing their mathematical thinking and reasoning. Join us to learn ways to develop students' fluency, use of problem-solving strategies, and number sense. You will walk away with ideas that involve students in "doing mathematics" and ready-to-use games!
1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Do you really know what your students are thinking when doing mathematics? How can you find out? What will you do next? This preconference workshop addresses teachers' challenges and questions in using formative assessment to guide planning and teaching, and monitor student progress in mathematics. This session will present teacher and classroom-tested formative assessment techniques that are doable—every day—and that make a difference. The Formative 5 is a palette of the techniques that research shows provide the most effective assessment "game plan" for any mathematics classroom. Come explore how Observations, Interviews, "Show Me" strategies, Hinge Questions, and Exit tasks can transform your planning and teaching.
Preregistration required. No lunch is served.
