About this Learning Opportunity
Starting in late August we will begin our first ever High School Mathematics Community! Through monthly meetings (60 minutes after school), we will create a collaborative virtual PLC. This community will discuss ways to create engaging environments for learners, high leverage strategies to create inclusive environments, best practices around instruction and assessment, and many other topics that will lead to a joyous experience for your students in your classroom. The timeline, topics, and ideas will be based on the needs and wants of the cohort.
