Tomorrow we will be joined by Patricia Helmuth, our guest expert, and presenter, to discuss strategies to modify high-cognitive demand math tasks to engage a classroom of students at varying math levels. Math and Numeracy CoP members will discuss how to uncover what students already know and then support them in developing a higher level of thinking and a new understanding of mathematics.
To get the most out of our upcoming three-day discussion, “How to Provide Equal Access to High-Level Math for Students of Mixed-Ability Levels,” you are invited to and encouraged to explore the following resources:
- Watch Dr. Jo Boaler’s Video to discuss best practices in leading a Visual Dot Card Number talk: https://www.youcubed.org/resources/jo-teaching-visual-dot-card-number-talk/
- Access and participate in The Apple Orchard Slide Show: http://bit.ly/2lvsJBd
Remember, to try each activity first as the student and then put on your teacher hat.
- Become familiar with the teaching approached called push and support that will be discussed by accessing the following curriculum guide: http://bit.ly/2lQVete
This discussion will focus on integrating learning through the following objectives that will guide our dialogue:
1. Examine the instructional approach called push and support
2. Discuss and share strategies for implementing and supporting adult math and numeracy learners.
3. Brainstorm and come up with approach on how to assist learners who might struggle or need more challenging work to complete.
I cordially invite you to begin exploring the resources and invite you to join in our discussion with Patricia, a teacher leader, trainer, and the newsletter editor for the Adult Numeracy Network (ANN). Please be sure to become a member so you can participate in the discussion and engage with other community members.
