Credit Option available

Instructor: Elaine Watson K-12 Math Consultant

An Invitation to Dig Into the Practice and

Content Standards, Grades 6 – 8

Mathematics CCSS

 

 Instructor: Elaine Watson, K-12 Math Consultant

There is a shift in focus in the Standards for Mathematical Content, another major shift is the focus on Standards for Mathematical Practice.  The Practice Standards consist of eight “habits” or “ways of approaching math” that students are expected to internalize and make their own.  The Practice Standards define the habits of mind that the STUDENTS (not the teachers) need to exhibit in their own practice.

Co-Teaching-Level I

Hybrid course: in-person and on-line

Instructors: Gabrielle Marquette and Jason Robtoy

Co-teaching is two or more people – most frequently a general education teacher and a special education teacher -- sharing responsibility for teaching all of the students assigned to a classroom.  It involves the equal distribution of responsibility among co-teachers for planning, instruction, and evaluation for a classroom of students.  Co-teaching is an option for providing differentiated and special instruction in an inclusive educational community.
