Accessible Middle School Math: Interactive Multimodal Lessons Engage Students

Accessible Middle School Math: Interactive Multimodal Lessons Engage Students

 This interactive course features innovative methods to explain concepts and  and perform procedures customarily taught at the middle school level. Concrete manipulatives, graphic organizers, gross motor/kinesthetic activities, and visual imagery techniques provide students with the ability to perceive and process abstract material that may otherwise elude or overwhelm them.  Learn to adapt or create materials to provide necessary structure and scaffolding to enable students (not their parents) to initiate and complete independent assignments. Foster increased vigilance, precision, and independence by promoting a growth mindset that rewards process rather than product. 
Upon completion participants will be able to:
implement teaching methods that utilize multiple modalities modeled in class, and described in required readings
implement techniques for enhancing mathematics learning in children with varied abilities through peer teaching 
demonstrate direct instruction of math procedures using manipulatives during peer teaching exercises.

Held July 23-24, 2018 at Landmark School, Prides Crossing Massachusetts
