  6. Building Comprehension Using Math Models

    This workshop focuses on helping students make sense of word problems using representations such as strip diagrams, number lines, and equations that include identification of the unknown quantity.  This workshop also presents research-based reading comprehension strategies teachers could use to help students identify essential points in understanding word problems. The goal for reading and math is one and the same: Comprehension!


  7. Addition and Subtraction...Let's SOLVE with Understanding!

    I can do it, but I can’t explain it...this workshop focuses computational strategies teachers could use to help bring a real understanding of number relationships and the meaning behind the math for their students. These strategies can be viewed as the bridge students need to develop conceptual and procedural understandings that help lead to fluency and number sense. Participants will engage in multiple strategies for solving addition and subtraction problems and practice applying these strategies to word problems! This workshop also models Number Talks. Teachers will share their thinking about how they solved a problem using the strategies with the group.


  8. A Vertical Look at Geometry and Measurement (K-5)
    Discover essential, practical ideas for helping students cultivate habits of mind that lead to success in geometry and measurement. This training will focus on the learning progression of the concepts of geometry and measurement from Kinder to 5th grade. This content knowledge will assist teachers in filling gaps by better understanding how these concepts build on each other from one grade level to the next. Teachers will analyze assessment items from TEA's Rapid Assessments and STAAR in order to identify the understandings, vocabulary, and rigor needed for effective geometry and measurement instruction.

  9. Fractions: From the Ground Up! (3-8)
    This workshop is vertically aligned and designed to build and/or enhance teachers' knowledge of the development and progression of concepts and skills around fractions from grades 1-8. Knowledge of these skills at each grade level will assist in developing a better understanding of the fraction concepts so that teachers can design effective fraction instruction that is scaffolded for purposes of closing student gaps. Participants will unpack the grade 1 to grade 8 fraction TEKS and engage in the use of strategies, models, tools/manipulatives and best practices.

  10. Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division…Let’s SOLVE with understanding! (Grades 3-5)

    I can do it, but I can't explain it...this workshop focuses on computation strategies teachers could use to help bring a real understanding of number relationships and the meaning behind the math for their students. These strategies can be viewed as the bridge students needs to develop conceptual and procedural understandings that help lead to fluency and number sense. Participants will engage in multiple computation strategies for solving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems and practice applying these strategies to STAAR released items! This workshop models Number Talks. Teachers will share their thinking about how they solved a problem and have the opportunity to learn from each other! 

    The computational strategies presented during this workshop can be used for scaffolding instruction for a student in an upper grade level who continues to struggle with the traditional algorithms.


  11. Getting to Know the Math STAAR: Grades 3-5
    Teachers of all levels of experience greatly benefit from this opportunity to dig into the make-up of the STAAR tests. Participants spend time exploring and familiarizing themselves with many of the TEA resources that give teachers insight into the test format and content. We also spend time reviewing allowable accommodations. Teachers identify and study high priority TEKS based on regional data, and they also analyze released items that are related to those student expectations.

  12. Math Academy in Action for the Struggling Student: Number Concepts & Relationships and Whole Number Operations- Intervention for Grades 2 and 3

    “Say it Louder,” “Complete More Problems,” “Teach it the Same Way,”…NOOOOO! If students do not have the foundational knowledge and skills, they struggle with grade level content. This session is designed to build and/or enhance participants’ knowledge of mathematics concepts and processes taught at the Kinder and 1st grade levels. Knowledge of these foundational skills will assist in closing student gaps which will enable struggling students to grasp grade-level concepts. Teachers will engage in hands-on activities using a variety of manipulatives and tools that were used during the TEA Mathematics Academies. Each teacher will leave the workshop with the necessary knowledge, skills, and tools to provide intervention instruction for their 2nd and 3rd grade struggling students.
