Title:
Instruction and Assessment Practices for Middle School Mathematics
Topic:
Participants will be provided with practical ideas to use in their math class. Several teachers will be sharing practices that they have used in their classes.
Summary:
Teachers from Horizon School division have been participating in an Alberta Research Network sponsored research project exploring the impact of teacher professional development on assessment practices in the middle school mathematics classroom. The lead presenter on this presentation is the lead researcher on the project and has asked teachers in the project share their research based assessment and instructional practices. At this time, it is anticipated that there will be 3 teachers presenting alongside Richelle. The goal is for teachers to share what they have learned and what has worked (and sometimes what has not worked) in their classrooms.
