The College and Career Readiness Standards call for a transformation in the way educators teach mathematics. Learn about the key shifts in the standards, the Standards of Mathematical Practice and their implications to your classroom instruction. Learn strategies to engage students in a more visual and hands-on approach that revolves around problem solving and the application of mathematics. This webinar will cover the most challenging to teach mathematics domains: Fractions, Number System, Algebraic Reasoning and Functions.
Building Capacity for Florida ABE to GED Prep Programs (Palm Beach County)
The Building Capacity for Florida GED® and ABE Programs initiative is being delivered via regional trainings throughout Florida. This full-day training includes four mini-sessions that integrate materials from the 2018 GEDTS® Summer Institute, as well as research-based materials developed by the institute’s trainers for the purpose of modeling the integration of skills from ABE to GED® Prep Programs. Sessions include a “math grab bag” that provides activities aligned to standards on the TABE 11 and 12, as well as building skills for GED® success. Two sessions focus on language arts skills, such as the conventions of Standard English, sentence structure, beginning writing skills and transitioning writing tasks from ABE to beginning GED® Prep. A session on what’s new in the TABE 11 and 12 and how to integrate these standards into the classroom is also included.
Join the IPDAE Lead Trainers at one of the regional workshops scheduled for this fall. Scripted PowerPoints, teacher guides, ready-to-use activities for the classroom, and an overview of IPDAE materials that align to the standards are provided to each attendee. Don’t miss this event and the opportunity to help “build capacity” in our state through training others and assisting students in achieving their goal of improving their academic skills and successfully passing the GED® test.
