What Educators Are Saying
This is the best professional development opportunity I have taken in my career. It was the best learning experience because I learned how children learn and develop mathematical skills and concepts. I feel very knowledgeable after taking this course. Thank You
This course was extremely beneficial to me, in how I assess, design lessons and teach students. Course 2 helped me connect a lot of the math thinking from Course 1 and from previous years of study and practice. I am looking forward to using the diagnostic assessments more and to really use the progressive mathematization to help design highly effective lessons.
I have enjoyed my journey so far and just seeing the improvement that my lessons have made to my students have inspired me and I hope to continue my learning in this area. It just makes sense and it is what good teaching should be about because all too often we get away from doing the right thing by students and we try to fill their heads as quickly as possible because of the demands that are placed on us. Every future teacher should go through a class like this.... thank you!
My participation in this course has given me a deeper level of knowledge, theory and understanding to support, develop and coach our elementary teachers in their math instruction and intervention. I have also been able to better support our classroom teachers in planning effective intervention lessons using the classroom instructional framework and guiding principles. In addition, I have been using my videos of assessment administration and lessons as learning model to them to better develop their use and understanding of using assessment information to drive instruction.
Above and beyond: combined theory and practice that I can use in my classroom tomorrow.
This course was a real eye opener for me! Especially on development of number sense verses memorization. I believe it is a real game changer on how we can assist students with number sense and stronger math knowledge. Not just to solve problems but to apply that knowledge to real life situations. I believe students will be more confident and more willing to try different ways to solve problems and then defend their answers.
I appreciated the "hybrid" format of this course. I liked the flexibility of learning on my schedule, practicing with students, reflecting, and regular periods to meet as a group on-line.
Hands down, this is the most applicable and exciting teacher training I have ever had! I feel empowered to be able to really effect student's understanding of not just how to do math, but how numbers and math work!
