The Return to Rigorous Mathematics

One of my favorite PD sites, EdWeb, recently offered a free webinar (with CE Certificate) on Returning to Rigorous Mathematics. Here’s a preview:

As students return to a hopefully more typical school year, learning is likely to be anything but typical. Student and teacher experiences over the past 18 months have varied greatly and classrooms are filled with students representing a wider range of learning needs than ever before. The challenge for teachers is to help each student move their mathematics learning forward. While it will take time for most students to return to typical “on-grade-level” expectations, we must support students to move forward rather than picking up instruction where “regular school” left off in March 2020. Responding to this wide range of learners is part of the job in education; the pandemic has made this part of the work more prominent in many classrooms.

  1. Good teaching always targets learning from where a student’s at and helping them reach what they need to know. These look like great posts, Jacqui. I’m not sure that I’ll get to them all. It’s a busy time of year.

      1. It sure is. I’ve been exercising a few other muscles the last few days – looking forward to exercising the brain again soon.
