Date(s):
Friday, April 03, 2020 | 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM
Session Location:
Central Alberta Regional Consortium 8 Page Avenue, Red Deer, AB
About the Session:

Let x be the number of classes in a semester, y be the complexity of the classroom, and z be your sanity.  How does one maximize z while addressing the constant increase of y and the limited number of x?  Dave Martin will share his success story of how he challenged many traditional practices of teaching high school math which resulted in more students with deeper understanding of essential concepts.  Rooted in research, come and learn how to implement highly effective teaching strategies while at the same time addressing "re dos, rewrites, and retests".  Through authentic experiences, you will be provided with some new ideas to take back to your context.  You will also learn ways to start your own journey towards an "Outcome Based" classroom which can truly challenge the comforted and comfort the challenged.  Time will be spent for you to develop a full learning progression around a high leverage outcome in your course.
