Increase Your Students’ Success on Math Assessments
How do you as an educator take the next steps to move from overwhelming data and standards-based instruction to meaningful, appropriate, do-able assessments?
How can in-class quizzes and tests help students grow from success with traditional, familiar tasks, to success with the rigor and format of state assessments?
In these workshops you will experience NJSLS/PARCC-like assessments, investigate a wealth of resources, and learn how to coordinate tests that will assess students as you help them move comfortably from the traditional to master “newer” expectations.
Differentiate Instruction In Math: “It’s Not As Hard As You Think!”
In many districts students and parents are now permitted to select the course-level of their choice, even if it is not the student’s recommended placement. Teachers are faced with new challenges. How can we, as caring, dedicated professional educators, teach students at different levels of understanding and backgrounds at the same time? Can we realistically meet the needs of each student?
In these workshops, we will review the latest research with appropriate course level content. Teachers will experience a range of effective instructional and learning strategies and specific activities to keep ALL students motivated, engaged, learning and succeeding. Yes, we can meet their needs.
