As an administrator, how can you support teachers who want to utilize research-based practices to facilitate the move from procedural understandings to conceptual understandings in the mathematics classroom? Support teachers in grades K-8 as they think about math as an inquiry-based study.
You'll leave with knowledge to:
• Recognize what math workshop looks and sounds like in K-8 classrooms
• Guide teachers in finding appropriate resources for curriculum planning and professional development in math workshop
• Think about policies and practices in your building that can support teachers in implementing best practices in math education (e.g., teacher evaluation rubrics)
