Date and Time: Tuesday July 19, 2022  |    8:30 am – 2:00 pm

Location: West Windsor Plainsboro School District Offices

Presenter: Andrea Bean

Description:

Using the research from CASEL, participants will explore and discuss the structures that promote SEL in a classroom. We will begin by learning about welcoming rituals. We will talk and demonstrate about engaging classroom strategies that teach the skills outlined in the CASEL Framework. We will look at strategies that teach students these skills both implicitly and explicitly. Finally, we will visit Optimistic Closure for each class. All strategies will be demonstrated using examples from various levels of mathematics, grades 6-12.

Session #2: Making Meaning of Addition and Subtraction

Audience: Grades K – 5 Teachers, Pre-Service Teachers/Educators, Specialists, Math Coaches, Supervisors, District Administrators

Date and Time: Thursday, August 4, 2022 |    8:30 am – 2:00 pm

Location: North Hanover Township – Endeavour Elementary School

Presenter: Cheryl Fricchione

Description: 

Many elementary students use the word “take away” when they are referring to subtraction. But did you know that this is actually only one model for subtraction? Addition and subtraction are powerful and complex operations that form the foundation of elementary mathematics, yet they are often reduced to a series of steps to memorize. In this workshop, we will make meaning of both operations, explore the trajectory of learning from kindergarten through 5th grade and address how to teach them with depth.
