Transitioning Elementary Schools to Common-Core Math
This event took place on Wednesday, March 12, 2014, 3 to 4 p.m. ET.

Sponsored by:

The Common Core State Standards in math pose significant challenges for teachers and administrators, establishing new ways of developing students' skills and understanding. As a result, teachers have been asking for more guidance and development from their districts, and districts have hundreds of different materials to sort through to figure out what is the best help to give. Such training is especially important for those educators charged with giving young learners the appropriate grounding in mathematical practices.

This webinar will bring together two math-education experts immersed in teacher training who will discuss the strategies districts can use to help their teachers understand and implement the common-core math standards at the elementary level. They will discuss effective communication and instruction techniques, integrating key conceptual changes, and useful sources of professional development.

Presenters:

Linda Gojak, president, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics

Elham Kazemi, professor, mathematics education, University of Washington

Moderator:

Ross Brenneman, assistant editor, Education Week Teacher
