Practice Series

 

What works best and when 

It’s not enough to know what strategies work best, it’s knowing when to put those strategies into practice to maximize students’ ownership of learning that matters. When classroom experiences are intentionally designed to meet each learner’s needs, you can maximize student learning and achievement. 

During five professional learning sessions, teachers will discover strategies that build conceptual understanding of mathematical or literacy ideas and learn to design classroom experiences that hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning for immediate impact in the classroom.

 


 

Practice Series

 

When do I take the Practice Series?
