Presented by Lauren Brady
This session will provide teachers with specific instructional strategies for improving Common Core Algebra Regents curriculum that have been proven successful for Level 1 & 2 students, English Language Learners and Students with Disabilities. Participants can expect an interactive guide through the process of designing an effective ninth grade Common Core Algebra unit: from analysis of Regents patterns to conceptualization of the unit arc. We will address question choice, pacing, scaffolding lessons and selection of productive struggle problem solving tasks. The process will be modeled through the lens of one unit, but the techniques are replicable across all units.
Suggested Audience: HS Teachers, Coaches/Deans, Administrators
