Back to school is always exciting and, as teachers, we’re always a little bit nervous. Just remember, there’s no such thing as “the best way” to launch a new year. During this webinar we will discuss favorite routines and strategies for getting the school year off to a strong start in math class. We will learn from each other exploring topics such as: How to learn your new students’ strengths in mathematics. How to use your time when there are never enough hours in the school day. Share your ideas and learn some new ones from Sara Delano Moore on Wednesday, August 10th at 4:00pm EST. This interactive session will help put you on the right foot for jumping into the new year, armed with routines, assessment strategies, and time management. CEU certificates will be made available following each session via email.

As the excitement of back to school starts to fade, we dive deep into the work of meeting the needs of each and every child in our classroom. This is a monumental undertaking. During this webinar, we will share strategies for differentiating instruction in math class. How do we identify an appropriate task? How do we adapt existing tasks to meet the varying needs of our students? How do we create and sustain grouping practices that support rigorous instruction for every learner? Bring your best thinking, sharable practices, and learn new ideas with Sara Delano Moore on Wednesday, September 7th at 4:00PM EST.
CEU Certificates will be made available following each session via email.

 

#AskORIGO About the Role of Discourse in Math Class
Wednesday, October 5, 2022 @ 4pm EST

 

As students settle into the routines of the new year, how do we build new habits around mathematical language and discourse? Working productively in groups and learning from each other requires students to build on their emerging mathematical language and persevere through communication challenges. During this webinar, we will share strategies for teacher questioning and for student-to-student discourse that develop mathematical vocabulary and encourage students to connect verbal representations of mathematics to visual, physical, and symbolic representations. Bring your best thinking and learn new ideas from Sara Delano Moore on Wednesday, October 5th at 4PM EST.
CEU Certificates will be made available following each session via email.

 

#AskORIGO About Retaining Learning through Deliberate Practice
Wednesday, November 9, 2022 @ 4pm EST

Watch Recording Here

As the year progresses, we may start to notice that some students are retaining their learning more than others.  Why does this happen? More importantly, what can we do as teachers to help all students retain their learning?  During this webinar, we will share strategies for retrieval practice, ongoing review, and other key elements for long-term learning. Be ready to share your experiences from your classroom, and bring an open mind to learn new ideas from fellow teachers and presenter, Sara Delano Moore on Wednesday, November 9th at 4PM EST.
CEU Certificates will be made available following each session via email.
