Want to have fun while feeling like you have accomplished your goals? Come to this day-long professional development to develop your plans as you support middle and high school aged students.
Morning will be all grade levels as we address a simple routine that will develop critical aspects of number sense and that can make a huge difference in just one year.
In the afternoon we will break out into Middle school/High school groups. Middle school will focus on games and routines that build understanding of fractional ideas across number systems. You will learn how to leverage whole number understanding to build rational number reasoning. High school will focus on teaching linear algebra conceptually and in a way that makes sense to students. They CAN pass the Math 1 assessment.
Our presenter will be Valerie Faulkner, a special education teacher, who developed a focus in mathematics while teaching middle and high school students in Durham, NC and supporting K-12 teachers in Wake County. She is a co-writer of NCDPI Math Foundations and is currently a Teaching Professor at NC State University in the College of Education. Stacy Eleczko is currently a middle school mathematics teacher in Wake County. She has served as a K-5 math coach and intervention teacher. Questions: Contact April Spencer at email@example.com
