Enhancing Mathematics Instruction for Students with Learning Difficulties: Algebraic Expressions and Equations
November 14-15 and December 4, 2017
December 5, 2017
The course is designed for teams of teachers. The target audience of middle grades teachers and special educators, as well upper elementary and Algebra 1 teachers, will deepen their understanding of the kinds of difficulties students have with mathematics, with a focus on content related to expressions and equations. The course will provide an approach and strategies to support the math learning of struggling students, particularly those with learning disabilities. Course participants will also focus on ways to strengthen collaboration between math teachers and special educators.
In the three course sessions, teachers will explore multiple approaches to math problems, view classroom videos, examine student work, engage in discussion, and plan accessibility strategies.
