Wednesday, December 13, 2017 12:30 PM - 3:30 PM The registration period has closed for this event.
This workshop is for East St Louis Teachers K-4 ONLY! Math-Literature connections allow learners to communicate their thoughts and make meaningful connections in mathematics from their own personal experiences. This is an excellent method of demonstrating math concepts in a real-life story format. Math literature connections naturally brings a more complex mode of communication to math instruction in exciting new ways and ideas to develop numeracy skills. All learners are engaged in mathematics and provides opportunities for the learner to write in mathematics. Math-Literature connections allows teachers to see if a learner is representing mathematics and other information correctly while supplying a visual connection to learning to help increase retention of a concept.
