About this Learning Opportunity
This classroom tested instructional framework provides an environment for numeracy that supports learning, fosters mathematical thinking and understanding - AND meets the needs of all students!
In this learning opportunity, we will look at how this innovative approach to mathematics instruction follows the same teaching philosophies used with guided reading. Specifically, we will explore how to effectively utilize small-group instruction, as well as how to plan math stations that will engage all learners in connecting mathematics to their own lives.
This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
