About this learning opportunity

What happens when you have a child who is far behind while another one is becoming bored?  

Come and learn about activities that are easy adaptable and differentiable. We will also discuss how to spiral your math class to ensure the essential ideas are weaved into your entire year, or semester. We will look at both short term and long term solutions.

This session addresses the TQS competency #3: Demonstrating a Professional Body of Knowledge

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
