Rethinking Math Acceleration Practices
|Date(s):||February 27, 2018|
|Audience:||Teams of K-12 math teachers and administrators|
This session will provide an overview of ideas and options for districts to use to "re-think" acceleration routes.
"Where are our middle school Algebra 1 students going in mathematics?" is the question to ask ourselves. Combining data, research and the increased rigor in the math standards, there is a need for course analysis and correction. This session will provide an overview of ideas and options for districts to use to "re-think" acceleration routes. The Kansas State Department of Education white paper and other documents will be available to help districts start this conversation. This is an encore of the 2017 NCSM annual conference and the 2017 NW Mathmatics Regional conference presentation.
|Lunch:||No lunch will be provided.|
During the morning Liz Peyser will share the work that she was involved with in Kansas. In the afternoon teams will have time to either begin or continue work on their acceleration plans. Liz will be available to help teams and answer questions.
All participants will be provided a certificate for PDUs based on the training hours.
