Dr. Jennifer Bay-Williams
- Dates: February 25, 28; March 6, 8. All webinars are from 3:45-5:45 PM.
This class is a repeat of the series offered in the fall. We received very positive feedback from this series. Representative comments: “This was THE BEST CLASS I have ever taken on teaching. Every minute was well planned and inspiring. The assignments were of value. The websites were easy to navigate…PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE offer this class again to Alaskan teachers!” and “ I can’t tell you enough how eye opening the four sessions were. I agree that this seems to be the direction to take in approaching math facts mastery. It is a culture that I want to establish for my students.”
Imagine an approach to mastering facts that prioritizes number relationships over specific facts. Such an approach not only leads to lasting learning of basic facts, but equips students with a number sense that serves them well with other mathematics they will encounter. In this webinar series we will explore such a strategy-based approach, and talk about a variety of activities and games that both increase students enjoyment of math and their fluency with basic facts. Additionally, we will look beyond timed tests to learn excellent assessment tools for measuring fluency, and talk about how to engage families in our work!
