Research has shown that when math content is new or difficult, students benefit from explicit instruction. Math language routines support sense making, optimize mathematical discourse and student responses.

Participants will practice using the CRA model of teaching in secondary mathematics. These high impact strategies will include scaffolding/ intervention ideas for struggling students whether in EC, Gen Ed or students on the bubble in MTSS. Using concrete materials, participants will practice in how to develop conceptual understanding of operations with polynomials, factoring, equations, and distributive property. Participants will practice Math Language Routines with activities from secondary math standards to help students move from concrete to representational to abstract. Elsa Iglesias, a Buncombe County EC Instructional Coach has taught all the secondary math courses and has a unique perspective on how to help struggling math students at the high school level.  For more information, contact April at    828-774-5681  ext. 103
