Math Intervention - 6-7 - Math Intervening in MIddle School:
Limited Capacity seats available

Want to take an advanced long-term course that helps both teachers and students build powerful numeracy and deep mathematical understandings ? Are you willing to enter a partnership on your campus between an interventionist and a core math teacher? This is an advanced opportunity for middle school math interventionists and grades 6 and 7 classroom teachers to dive into practical, student-centered methods to support them in helping children think deeply about mathematics. One of the goals of intervention is to support deep number sense and the development of a repertoire of strategies based on landmark numbers and operations. This partnership that is launched with this first session will help build relationships between intervention and core math teachers at the campus level. Interventionists will meet together for district collaborative sessions hosted during the school year. Campus partnerships will meet together on campus, and also participate in webinars, Google classroom activities, and hangouts with the entire district cadre. Let’s take this opportunity to join forces to help support our students who struggle with mathematics. Each participant will receive two books that will be used throughout the year in our book study. The first book is Building Powerful Numeracy for Middle and High School Students, and the second is Lessons and Activities for Building Powerful Numeracy. Both books are by Pamela Harris who is a former secondary math teacher and highly renowned national instructor and speaker. The course is limited so register soon with your partner teacher(s).
Audience: MS Interventionists paired with at least one Core Math Teacher at the same school

Math - 8-12 - Transforming Learning with Number Strings
Limited Capacity seats available

Problem Strings are purposeful sequences of related problems, designed to help students mentally construct mathematical relationships. It is a powerful lesson structure during which teachers and students interact to construct important mathematical strategies, models, and concepts. The power of a problem string lies in the carefully crafted conversation as students solve problems, drawing out important connections and relationships. (Based on the Work of Pam Harris)

Math Intervention - 6 - Moving on Up - Making Powerful Connections by Bridging 5th and 6th Grade Math Fluency and Sense-Making
Limited Capacity seats available

Ever wonder what your students learned in 5th grade math before coming to 6th grade? In this session, 6th grade math teachers and middle school interventionists will experience the types of strategies highlighted in our RRISD Elementary ARRC. Come learn about the mental fact strategies that students learn as they develop multiplication and division fact fluency. Experience a 5th grade number talk to see how students' computation strategies are recorded symbolically and with visual models. Learn about powerful instructional activities including numberless word problems, notice and wonder, and 3 act tasks, that foster students' mathematical sense making. Let's join forces to help our soon-to-be 6th graders have a successful transition from elementary to middle school mathematics.

Participants include 6th Grade Math Classroom Teachers and Middle School Math Interventionists
