Description: National test scores suggest that many students fall behind before third grade and never really catch up. Just when most students are entering algebra, only eight percent of special education students are proficient in math. Many other students with a variety of learning challenges also struggle yet are expected to meet rigorous curriculum standards. This workshop will focus on ways for meeting the needs of diverse learners in an inclusion or small group setting. Suggestions for embedding skills support in standard curricula instruction using evidence based strategies will be offered. The research and rationale for this approach will be followed by hands on practice with manipulative objects for topics from pre-algebra to algebra and geometry.
1. Participants will be able to discuss the key points of evidence supporting a multisensory approach to mathematics instruction.(NCTM, What Works Clearinghouse and UDL)
2. Participants will be able to use a variety of manipulative objects to model pre-algebra, algebra geometry concepts.
3. Participants will explain specific instructional strategies for using language to enhance learning and foster student memory and independence.
4. Participants will list specific strategies for meeting the needs of students with learning challenges including how to modify materials and instruction in a small group or an inclusion setting.
