A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

I have spent over 30 years in mathematics education, working in schools and with students who represent a greatly diverse student population. With much study, practical experiences as a teacher, supervisor and math coach, I have developed an extensive knowledge base of what works and what doesn’t. I designed this seminar based on the most current and effective ideas, strategies and activities that can truly help your grades 6-12 math students.

With greater emphasis on both high academic rigor and high expectations, it is increasingly important that we can design and provide instruction and assessment in the classroom that are focused on the needs of ALL our students. Of course, major challenges we face are accommodating the individual and collective needs and abilities of our students, and focusing and aligning instruction to support student understanding and knowledge of key math concepts, skills.

I designed this seminar to provide you with the most current, best, practical strategies and research-based ideas for grades 6-12 math. My goal is to provide you with easy-to-use and classroom-proven activities, teaching techniques and cooperative grouping methods. I will share effective individual and group formative assessments, and ways to integrate teaching and learning strategies that address the unique math needs of your grades 6-12 students.

Please join me for an engaging day devoted to strengthening our math instruction in grades 6-12 as we discover and examine the best, most current, strategies for teaching math. My personal goal is to provide you with many concrete ideas and strategies to help ALL your students become successful in mathematics.

Beatrice Moore Luchin
