    Small-Group Math Instruction and Differentiation, Grades 3-8

    Monday, January 27, 2020

    Are you finding it hard to deal with other groups as you work with small groups? Or, have you been meaning to implement small-group instruction and are needing a "how to" course? This session will focus on differentiating small-group math instruction as per the needs of each student. The use of concept-based instruction will be employed as well as dusting off some of those manipulatives sitting on the shelf. Because there will be practice involved, math teachers in grades 3-8 will find this a useful day that will impact their teaching for years to come.
