A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

I have spent a significant part of 30 plus years in mathematics education working in schools and with students who represent a greatly diverse student population. With much study, practical applications as a teacher, supervisor and mathematics coach, I have developed an extensive knowledge base of what works and what doesn’t work. I have focused this new seminar on the most current and effective ideas, strategies and activities that actually do work to help students in grades 6-12.

With more emphasis on both high academic rigor and high expectations, it is increasingly important that we are able to design and conduct instruction and assessment in the classroom that are focused on the needs of ALL students. Of course, the challenge facing us in the classroom is to accommodate the individual and collective needs and abilities of the student population served. We must ensure that classroom instruction is focused and aligned to support a student’s understanding and knowledge of mathematics concepts, skills and ability to apply them in problem solving situations but also in supporting language acquisition. Additionally, in order to increase student success, the teacher must learn strategies that address the language of mathematics and incorporate these literacy strategies on a daily basis.

This seminar is designed to provide you with the most current, best, practical strategies and research-based ideas that target the teaching of mathematics in grades 6-12. My focus is to provide you with easy-to-use and classroom-tested activities that model effective teaching techniques, cooperative grouping techniques, effective use and design of individual and group formative assessments, and integration of teaching and learning strategies that address the mathematical needs of students in grades 6-12.

Please join me for a day devoted to strengthening mathematics instruction in grades 6-12 as we look at and discover the most current, best strategies for teaching math. My personal goal will be to provide each participant with concrete ideas and strategies designed to ensure that ALL your students become successful in mathematics.

Sincerely,
Beatrice Moore Luchin

P.S. The focus of this seminar will be the most current, most effective, classroom-tested strategies proven successful to help your students strengthen their mathematical skills.
