CHOOSE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING TOPICS WHEN REGISTERING
   ASSESSMENT
    Formative and otherwise. Teachers need to focus on what students know, not on what they don't know. We will look the best practices that allow teachers to focus on student understanding and provide information and feedback to students so that deeper learning happens.
   COACHING
    A one day professional learning event for coaches, curriculum specialists, math department chairs, or other teacher support personnel. All leaders who are working with teachers using CPM or other student centered math programs at the secondary level are welcome. An online community will be created for those who wish to have ongoing conversations. The day will be led by the National Coaching Coordinator for CPM. Topics will include:
  • Teacher and student roles. What should they look like?
  • Building your coaching toolbox. What might coaching sessions with a math teacher look like?
  • Supporting collaborative teacher teams and in turn collaborative student teams.
  • Simplify the process for teachers and helping teachers make connections.
  • Working with all stakeholders: administrators, parents, and community.
   CREATING COLLABORATIVE CLASSROOMS
    Teachers report challenges in implementing the strategies that make students college and career ready in the 21st century. How do you keep students engaged on interesting math problems? How do you make sure students are discussing rich, mathematical concepts and ideas? How do you shift the teaching focus from covering topics to deepening students' understanding of the mathematics in each course?
    In this workshop, teachers will experience the excitement of engaging mathematical lessons while discussing the mathematics with colleagues. Participants will learn how to adjust lessons to promote mathematical discourse while also experiencing strategies they can use to facilitate discussions as students grapple with engaging problems.
   STATISTICS
    A Statistics workshop designed for teachers wanting to gain confidence with statistics material that is typically covered in an Algebra 2, Integrated III, or first semester of a 4th year Statistics course. The following material will be covered:
  • Comparing Single Variable Data (Investigating Data Representations)
  • Two-Variable Quantitative Data (Correlation and Regression)
  • Multivariable Categorical Data (Probability: tables, trees, Venn diagrams)
  • Studies and Experiments (Case Effect, Controlling Variability, Confounding and Bias)
