About this Learning Opportunity

Come and learn the progression children follow in learning fractions! We will begin with a quick review of Depth of Knowledge (DoK) and how to write our questions to varied levels. Even though you may not teach all grades, understanding the development of the concept is very important therefore, each Divisions presentation will have some information relating to the progression seen in other Divisions as well. All strategies, activities and assessments will be shared with participants to use as needed. 

All learning opportunities with the ERLC regional team will focus on the Alberta Education and district priority areas.
