A Message From Your Seminar Leader
As math teachers, we are very aware of the importance of foundational knowledge and skills when approaching secondary level math learning. In these unprecedented times, our students seem to be arriving in our math class either already struggling with pre-requisite mathematical skills or possibly more ahead of the curve than we planned for, yet still showing signs of misconceptions related to unlearned or forgotten math concepts. The gaps can overwhelm. Subsequently, students begin to have self-doubt and eventually give up on learning. If this sounds familiar to you, you will want to attend this one-day seminar designed to help you better meet the needs of your students to help them improve their math growth and achievement.
My hope for this seminar is to empower you with innovative and practical strategies you can use immediately to expedite your math students’ growth toward meeting their individual math goals. You will learn and practice multifaceted ways to increase your students’ math growth, close the achievement gap faster, and boost their learning process. My goal is to provide you with a “toolbox” for learning that includes ideas, resources, and strategies to guide your students to become more independent and successful in your math class.
The time we will spend together will be a collaborative process of learning, practicing, and growing as math teachers. You will leave the seminar inspired and ready to infuse this new and innovative learning into your math class. I look forward to our day together!
Dr. Linda Johnson-McClinton
