Mathematics: Reaching All Learners Together Annual Conference: Call for Presenters

Date: October 28, 2019
Location: Lansing Community College West Campus
Time: 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The Michigan Council for Exceptional Children (MCEC) and the Michigan Council of Teachers of Mathematics (MCTM), in conjunction with Alt+Shift, encompassing (Mi)2, seek presenters for their fifth annual joint conference Mathematics: Reaching All Learners Together. This one-day conference is designed to increase collaboration and shared learning between general and special education math teachers.
Why should I present?
Both general and special educators are discovering and creating ways to increase math achievement for students with individualized education programs (IEPs). Solutions exist at large systems levels like creating opportunities to collaborate or improve communication and also exist at the personal level, like aligning instructional strategies to the needs of individual students.
Presenting would be a great way for you and your colleague(s) to model collaboration and help support other teachers who want to improve. Presenters are also offered a discounted rate for the conference.
What could I present?
If you are using or supporting instruction that is having a positive effect on students including those in inclusive environments, resource rooms, self-contained rooms, and center-based programs, please consider submitting a proposal to share those ideas with others.
Topics could include, but are not limited to:

  • Co-teaching strategies.
  • Instructional strategies.
  • Concrete-Representational-Abstract (C-R-A) models for math content.
  • Intervention tools.
  • Assessment tools.
  • Assistive technology supports.
