Algebra: All Aboard! (A3)
With the adoption of the Common Core Standards in mathematics, the ability for classroom teachers to design instruction that helps all students meet learning goals in Algebra is more critical than ever. However, many teachers lack tools in their arsenal to help them plan instruction that will not only engage and motivate a variety of learning needs they encounter, but also help all students meet learning goals in Algebra.
This multi-faceted approach to teaching Algebra encourages students of all learning styles to master the big ideas and concepts. During five days in the summer and three fall follow-ups, teachers will apply the latest research to curricular and instructional strategies. Participants will practice using technology, manipulatives, vocabulary strategies, various representations, communication and connections to enhance student learning for all students. Many of the strategies and ideas gained can be used as interventions for struggling students. Participants will leave with a toolbox of over $800 worth of instructional materials to use immediately as they return to the classroom!
