Woman listening to speaker

Session 2, 4 and 6

Module Focus – Grades K-1, 2-3, 4-5


Participants experience a high-level overview of the mathematical concepts presented within the specified modules. This provides context for then watching a video clip of classroom instruction from the appropriate grade level. As they watch, participants collect evidence of scaffolding or accommodations made for specific subgroups of students, as well as missed opportunities. Participants work independently to develop the feedback they might deliver to the teacher. Then as a whole group, participants review evidence and feedback through collaborative discussion.
