This 2-day series is designed to help school and district leadership teams implement K-12 mathematics programs that sustain and improve the learning of each and every student over time. Research affirmed practices and protocols are provided that when implemented correctly significantly improve student learning and teacher knowledge of mathematics.
These two days will be reflective and inspiring as we explore how to help teachers work collaboratively with others, create a vision and monitor for adult actions that really matter in our schools (result in improved student learning), and become confident using the tools, protocols and feedback provided.
Each of the two days will require you to reflect, examine and better understand the quality of the mathematics teaching and learning effort in your school or district, and the danger of the unintentional inequities created by adults in your school, when they work in isolation from one another.
