A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

Have you ever walked into your classroom and wondered how students of the same age could be so different in their understanding of math? I certainly have. I’ve also wondered how I, as their teacher, could meet their needs and make sure every student is learning all he or she possibly can. We know we cannot hold off grade appropriate math lessons until everyone is ready, and we also feel the stress of limited time for re-teaching as they gradually become ready. How do we get them caught up? Fortunately, using ‘Just-In-Time’ intervention techniques and strategies, I can meet the varying needs of my students and propel them toward more success in math. To do so, I learned to plan more effectively in scaffolding relevant, yet engaging instruction.

According to Oxford Languages, the world’s leading dictionary publisher, intervention is “the action taken to improve a situation.” In this seminar, you will learn how to successfully design and deliver more effective math intervention using a guided math approach to differentiate instruction. While utilizing research-based strategies, this seminar will also allow you to discover classroom-tested ways to find time needed to work with individuals and small groups so they can more successfully participate in grade level math experiences. By fostering students’ growth mindset, students will also become motivated to improve their mathematical understanding.

As teachers, we work hard to use formative assessment to provide engaging, respectful intervention for students at all levels of learning. At the same time, we must provide access to grade level material they may not be ready to understand. This seminar is focused on providing you with ideas, strategies, and techniques that have been successfully incorporated in classrooms throughout our country. My goal is to give you an array of ideas and activities you can use the next day in any instructional setting. You will also learn ways to integrate your current math curriculum in the designing and delivery of just-in-time math intervention.

Join me so I may share ways to effectively help our young learners become more confident and competent mathematicians. You’ll leave having a game plan for how to help your students achieve this goal!
