NEW: Explicit Math Instruction in the Middle School Grades

Instructors: Lauren Benjamin, MS, and Victoria Scarinci, MS
Date: Wednesday, January 25, 2023, 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Fee: $120

Mathematical computing and problem solving can pose challenges to middle school students as they encounter complex language, vocabulary, and number systems. Students in these grades are increasingly required to compute, reason, and problem solve across rational and irrational numbers, fractions, and decimals.

In this workshop, Lauren Benjamin, MS, and Victoria Scarinci, MS, Middle School Math Coordinators at The Windward School, will demonstrate research-based and highly effective, explicit and multisensory methods for teaching math to students in grades 5 – 8. They will outline the steps of a direct instruction lesson plan and illustrate strategies and activities to build number sense and fluency, support vocabulary, and promote the application of problem-solving techniques.
