Back to Teacher Leadership Program
I'd be shocked if we didn't have some fun evening social events, but we haven't heard any proposals yet. If you have ideas, please share them in response to this email!
The overall conference theme is on the use of instructional routines/activities, and many (but not all) sessions will focus on this theme. Some examples of instructional routines are Number Talks, Problem Strings, Contemplate then Calculate, Which One Doesn't Belong, Connecting Representations, etc. These routines are both flexible (the math always changes) and rigid (the format remains the same). The rigidity of the format reduces the number of decisions we need to make, allowing us to focus entirely on the parts of the lesson that are most important for our students.
(The New Visions office has a fairly strict entrance policy. Registration is key to avoiding annoyance getting into the conference.)
Looking forward to August. Be in touch if we can help with anything!
