Celebrating Courage & Perseverance
Commitment is a journey! Perseverance and courage is the KEY to reaching the destination. The literacy and mathematics vision we are striving for requires transformational change in the ways we think about systems, educators, and children. This work takes both courage and perseverance. Participants will engage in dialogue around how the MAISA GELN Literacy and Math Essential Instructional Practices and Essential School-Wide and Center-Wide Practices in Literacy and Mathematics set the stage for this transformation and understand the commitments that will help them get there. In addition to the Essential Practices, participants will walk away with resources developed to support local districts in this important work.
Supporting Educators: Transformational Mathematics Systems Change
Supporting educators in transforming the teaching and learning of mathematics is complex. The leadership role (building and district) is, as you know, a vital piece of the puzzle. Participants of this session will learn about creating and supporting a coherent system of transformational change for the educators they serve. We will spend time reflecting on current practice in a district/building and create space to identify areas of growth.
