    Program: RPDC - Heart of MO - Regional Professional Development Center

    Location: 2 London Hall Rm #7-UMC campus (Columbia, MO)

    Dates: 1/17/2019

    As educational author Mike Mattos says, “Unless one of your interventions is ‘students will stay in school until they’re 27’ you need priority standards.” Teachers and principals know there’s just too much content to “cover” and educational researchers agree that the need for a “guaranteed and viable curriculum” is essential in raising student achievement. Despite the collective knowledge however, this is often difficult, daunting work that requires time and expertise. Come join educators from around the state to learn how to identify, unwrap and utilize priority standards to improve student learning. Learn the process you and your school can use to leverage priority standards to drive student achievement, look at examples from a variety of content and grade levels, and spend time working alongside colleagues while getting feedback from our school improvement consultants along the way.

    Program: RPDC - Northeast

    Dates: 1/18/2019

    New
    DATE: Friday, January 18, 2019

    TIME: 9:00am-3:00pm

    LOCATION: Truman State University Student Union Building TBA

    COST: $100 – Morning refreshments and lunch included

    Teachers are being asked to change roles and to become facilitators of student learning. To accomplish this in mathematics, they are often required to practice “ambitious teaching.” In ambitious teaching, the teacher provides students with challenging tasks and then observes and listens, offering appropriate support as needed. Students may be working on their own, in pairs, or in collaborative groups. The goal is to ensure that every student succeeds in doing meaningful, high-quality work, not just completing procedures with no meaning attached.

    The book Taking Action by DeAnn Huinker and Victoria Bill tackles the challenge of ambitious teaching by taking a deep look at the eight teaching practices identified by NCTM.
    In this workshop, participants will dive into two of these practices:
    (1) posing purposeful questions; and
    (2) implementing tasks that promote reasoning and problem-solving.
    Hands-on activities and time for reflection and discourse will encourage participants to make connections with these practices and to identify where they are occurring or could easily be added to their own classroom.

    Join me in this first conversation about two of the most important mathematical teaching practices and consider how they might make a difference in promoting student success and achievement.
