Getting Ahead of the 2016 Math SOL:
Resources and Strategies to Retrofit Your Math Program and Classroom to Meet and Exceed the Deep Learning Embedded in the 2016 Virginia Math SOL
Transform your math program/classroom into an environment where students will learn how to examine, interpret, and think critically about essential math concepts as articulated in the 2016 Math SOL by attending this one-day workshop, for Pre-K to Grade 6 teachers and administrators, presented by Dr. Dan Mulligan and sponsored by the Virginia Association of School Superintendents on September 27 at the Hampton Embassy Suites & Convention Center.Participants will—
- explore the new curriculum framework that defines minimum content knowledge, skills and understandings and gain insight into strategies to incorporate these into a broader, locally designed curriculum;
- increase their knowledge of mathematics content and learning progressions inherent in the process standards of problem-solving, communication, reasoning, making connections, and representing mathematical ideas, generalizations and relationships;
- discover learning tasks that model ways to plan and implement effective instruction as specified in the revamped Understanding the Standard section of the 2016 Curriculum Framework;
- practice new learning structures that foster access and equity, as an integral part of, implementing high-quality standards in your classroom, school, and division; and
- gain classroom-ready strategies with the potential to transform teaching practices to meet new rigorous standards.
- identify and teach essential vocabulary for each grade-level/course;
- create effective lesson plans to engage students in conceptually understanding math;
- embed new learning structures to build (and check for) background knowledge, foster computational fluency, and extend and apply knowledge; and
- effectively integrate technology to create an environment of hypothesizing, struggling, discovering, and applying math.
to access resources used during the day.
