  • Cost: $225
  • Date: January 20, 2017
  • Time: 8:30 to 3:30
  • Presenter: Deb Armitage, M.Ed.
  • Location: John H. Duval Elementary School, 60 Regal Street, Whitman, MA

Through the lens of problem solving, learn how to measure K–5 student performance against the Common Core. Discover strategies for promoting mathematical communication, reasoning and higher-order thinking as well as how to improve teaching and learning opportunities for K–5 students.

This session focuses on:

  • The appropriate instructional tools necessary to effectively implement the CCSS.
  • The underlying concepts and processes behind this teaching/learning approach.
  • The essentials of performance-based assessment and instruction to support the CCSS for Mathematical Content and Mathematical Practice.

Exemplars K–5 math tasks, rubrics and anchor papers are incorporated throughout this introductory workshop. The vocabulary for problem solving is defined and problem-solving strategies are explored. Mathematical communication and application of mathematical concepts across math strands will be shown. Discussion topics also include: differentiating instruction, encouraging student involvement and developing a student's ability to assess his/her own work to improve performance.
