Guided math is a great instructional strategy. In this mini-course we focus on how to take your guided math work to the next level. In this engaging, educational and resource-filled workshop, teachers will learn how to take guided math and math workstations to the next level. They will see how to create standards-based small group lessons that rock, workshop management strategies that work, and assessment tools that inform instruction! Dr. Nicki will teach about making guided math groups and math workstations integrating this structure with your current curriculum, leveling the guided math group activities and math workstations so that they make sense with each unit of study, and assessing throughout the year in ways that drive instruction.
