Grade 8 Math: Digging Deeper into CCLS for Mathematics Modules Description: Participants will explore the four different lesson structures (Problem Set, Exploration, Socratic, and Modeling Cycle) used to format each module lesson. The workshop will address differences among the lesson structures; how the lesson structure engages students in the topic; how to launch each lesson type; scaffolding strategies; and instructional resources referenced by Engage NY. All participants will leave the sessions with a) an example of each lesson structure, including resources; (b) a systematic approach to create CCLS lessons; and (c) an actual lesson for the module session topic they can implement for their grade level. Each workshop stands alone, and is focused on the module topic. Materials: Current Module Grade 8 Modules address: Module 1: Integer Exponents and the Scientific Notation Module 5: Examples of Functions from Geometry Module 2: The Concept of Congruence Module 6: Linear Functions Module 3: Similarity Module 7: Introduction to Irrational Numbers Using Geometry Module 4: Linear Equations Dates: Module 1: Oct. 7, 2015 Module 2: Nov. 16, 2015 The remainder of the modules will be scheduled in MyLearningPlan.com with the pacing calendar Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am-3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: Grade 8 math teachers, special education and AIS teachers Building teams are strongly encouraged to attend Location: SWBOCES, 450 Mamaroneck Avenue, 3rd Floor, Harrison, NY 10528 Fee: $184 per participant per day for CoSer 555 members $220 per participant per day for CoSer 555 non-members Presenter: Linda Fusco, Ph.D. Contact: Anna Marie Brancucci 914-345-8500, ext. 3125 abrancucci@swboces.org Visual Modules and Problem Solving in Mathematics: Grades 6-8 Description: Problem solving remains a critical part of the mathematics curriculum. The Common Core Learning Standards addresses problem solving "situations" at every grade level. This workshop allows teachers to examine the various types of word problems, as defined in the CCLS and analyze strategies to help their students. Participants will: • Analyze the effectiveness of visual models such as tape (bar) diagrams and area models to help students compre hend and solve various story problems, ratio, percent and other grade relevant word problems • Examine the value of a problem solving protocol • Link the theory to practice by analyzing classroom activities designed to enhance students' problem solving abilities • Link specific problem solving situation with the Common Core Learning Standards Date: Nov. 9, 2015 Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am-3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: Grades 6-8 math teachers, special education and AIS teachers Building teams are strongly encouraged to attend Location: SWBOCES, 450 Mamaroneck Ave. Harrison, NY 10528 Fee: $184 per participant for CoSer 555 members $220 per participant for CoSer 555 non-members Presenter: Alexandra Greenberg Contact: Anna Marie Brancucci 914-345-8500, ext. 3125 abrancucci@swboces.org 43
