Deeper Learning in Math: Elementary provides the knowledge and tools math teachers need to teach the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, including learning to bring the Standards for Mathematical Practice to life. Participants will also explore the “three shifts” that the CCSS requires of educators: Focus, Coherence, and Rigor. Each learning experience will illustrate how a specific lesson structure, Math Workshop 2.0, can tap into the learner’s ability to search for and recognize patterns, create meaning, integrate sensory experience, and make connections—becoming more adept at solving problems. Through active participation in and debriefing of the elements of quality math lessons, participants learn about themselves as mathematicians, how to effectively scaffold students' learning and balance skills practice with in-depth problem solving. This institute is differentiated to focus on meeting the cognitive, developmental, and content needs of elementary (K-6) learners.
