In this session, we focus on five practices for the instruction of math that have a strong evidence base. First, we focus on modeling, practice, and feedback. Then, we discuss the importance of using clear and concise math vocabulary. Third, we review multiple representations and why they are important for conceptual and procedural learning. Next, we discuss the importance of building fluency. Finally, we review essential components of word-problem instruction. By the end of this session, you will have confidence in creating a strong instructional platform in math!
Participants will be able to:
Effectively model math and engage students in practice.
Understand the importance of math vocabulary and determine ways to support math vocabulary learning
See how multiple representations are important for helping students understand math concepts and procedures
Discover ways to build fluency in math
Explore ineffective and effective word-problem practices
