11:30 a.m. – Integrating Mathematics and Language Arts: Writing Short Stories with Fractions

Description: Once students have been introduced to basic operations with fractions, these can be integrated into creative writing experiences. In this session highlighting an example of the integration of mathematics and language arts, we will share a lesson in which students have the opportunity to strengthen their understanding of fraction operations while exercising their creativity by writing a short story that includes fractions.

 

2:30 p.m. – Sharing Our Classrooms: Professional Learning through Reflective Peer Observation

Description: Does peer observation play a part in your current teaching practice? What might mathematics teachers gain through observing one another? We describe a “Teaching Trios” model for professional learning where teams of three teachers engage in reflective observation of one another’s teaching, attending to NCTM’s eight Mathematics Teaching Practices.
