Grade Level Learning Sessions: Mathematics Grades PK-8

  • Facilitating High Quality Student Discussions in Eureka Math

    Session Duration:

    Full Day

    (2 breakout sessions)

    Session Description

    This interactive session explores the importance of the Student Debrief/Discussion in Eureka Math lessons. Teachers will gain a deeper understanding of how to support students with "talking math" in order to translate their discussion to written explanations of their work. Teachers will also explore how a standard addressed within a lesson aligns to the type of discussion required in order to elevate the rigor and provide students with a deeper understanding of the standard.

    Target Audience

    For teachers who have executed Q1 Modules.

    For teachers new to Eureka Math.

    *Please note that for teachers new to Eureka, they must attend the Quarter 1 Module Study before attending this session.

  • Quarter 1 Module Study

    Session Duration:

    Half Day

    (1 breakout session)

    Session Description

    This session provides an opportunity for teachers, coaches, and instructional leaders to closely examine the development of mathematical concepts, instructional strategies, and assessment within a particular module at a selected grade level. In addition to building strong content knowledge, this work equips teachers with a deep understanding of how each component of the module—module overview, topic overview, daily lesson plan, and assessment—contributes to successful implementation of the Eureka Math curriculum. Teachers will also engage in the annotated planning process to strengthen their planning practices and support their internalization of the lessons.

    Target Audience

    For teachers who require a deeper understanding of the guiding principals of the Quarter 1 Expeditionary Learning Module.

    For teachers who have not executed the Q1 Module with fidelity and/or who require support with effectively planning from the Module Overview to the daily lesson level.

    SY15-16 residents do not need to attend this session as they will receive this training during June 6-8.

  • Internalizing engageAUSL: Planning Through Annotation

    Session Duration:

    Half Day

    (1 breakout session)

    Session Description:

    This session provides an opportunity for teachers, coaches, and leaders to practice a planning process that focuses on deep internalization of the engage lessons. This process will strengthen daily lesson planning while also deepening knowledge of the standards and shifts embedded within the module. Participants will collectively and independently annotate a specific grade's module overview and a series of lessons from with the major work of the grade. Participants will gain tools to strategically plan with an emphasis on doing the math.

    Target Audience:

    For teachers who have executed Quarter 1 Modules.

    This is not for teachers who are attending the Quarter 1 Module Study. Annotated lesson planning will also be addressed in that session.

  • Understanding the Major Work of the Grade Band

    Session Duration:

    Full Day

    (2 breakout sessions)

    Session Description

    This session focuses on the major work of a grade band, highlighting the coherence of the Eureka Math curriculum using examples drawn from across the grades. Through this study, teachers gain a profound understanding of each mathematical concept and learn how the concept is developed for students as a coherent progression from lesson to lesson and from grade to grade. Teachers walk away equipped with the tools they need to address gaps in students’ prior knowledge and to use the content to deepen students’ engagement with the mathematical practice standards. Terminology, instructional strategies, and models are embedded throughout the session, laying the groundwork for teachers to move forward confidently in their implementation of A Story of Units, A Story of Ratios, or A Story of Functions.

    Specific focus within each grade band includes:

    K-2: Addition and subtraction

    3-5: Multiplication and division of whole numbers and fractions

    6-8: Ratios and proportional relationships

    Target Audience

    For all Math teachers.

  • Focus on Fluency

    Session Duration:

    Full Day

    (2 breakout sessions)

    Session Description

    Fluency practice is an energetic, substantial, and sustained component of the Eureka Math curriculum. It is carefully designed to help students develop the speed and accuracy that allow them to solve complex problems efficiently. The session includes interactive demonstration, analysis of teaching sequences, deliberate practice (i.e., practice using feedback), analysis of classroom footage, and the customization and crafting of fluency sequences to meet student needs. Furthermore, the session provides participants a window into the coherence of the Eureka Math curriculum by illustrating the progression of fluency work across a grade span.

    Target Audience

    For all Math teachers.
