In this engaging, educational and resource-filled institute, teachers will learn how to do it! They will see how to create standards-based small group lessons that rock, workshop management strategies that work, and assessment tools that inform instruction! Dr. Nicki will teach about managing flexible groups, matching activities to students, incorporating the 4 must have workstations and using technology throughout the workshop.
In terms of fluency, we will look at how to reinforce the different aspects such as flexibility, efficiency and strategic competence. Also, we will discuss word problems and the many ways to teach them. Much of our discussion will be based on 3 of Dr. Nicki’s books, Guided Math in Action, Math Running Records (A Framework for Fluency) Problem Solving in Action. Join us to find out how to unlock the power of guided math today!
