Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

Experience a student centered classroom through Cognitively Guided instruction (CGI). Develop methods to deliver and assess instruction by making sense of student work. Engage in a problem solving instructional strategy that effortlessly connects mathematics, reading, writing, and science when you choose. Be ready to model and explain your way into creating a conceptual, collaborative, student centered learning environment built on the foundation of the Common Core.

In this session, you'll go through through an intense look at connecting images, concepts, facts, language, and procedures through a compellingly researched problem solving approach. You'll solve problems by modeling, explaining their mathematical thinking, and sharing your reasoning with others while constructing connections to the K-5 CCSSM. Participants will be given the opportunity to engage and participate in the process from start to finish.

  Sessions: Effective Feedback & Assessment
  • MATH STANDARDS & PRACTICES Learn how to create a student centered classroom. All standards are addressed and assessed while giving students the opportunity to solve, share, and discuss mathematics.
  • WHAT WILL ATTENDEES GAIN? Teachers will discover what it looks like to allow opportunities for students to solve problems as they connect problem types to the common core all while engaged in solving problems themselves.
  • BEYOND "STAND & DELIVER" Participants will be immersed in a class that is designed and focused on the delivery methods of modern times.
