Math Workstations in Action, Grades 3-5

taught by Dr. Nicki Newton

Course description

Math Workstations are such powerful, engaging, rigorous structures for learning. I know from first hand experience that when workstations are data-driven, standards-based, intentional spaces, they can and do improve student achievement. Take the course and learn how to assess for, plan, design, implement and assess the work done in math workstations. This course is designed around Dr. Nicki’s upcoming book on Math Workstations in Action (k-2). The examples will focus on grades k-2.
