Digging Deeply Into Problem Solving: Infusing the Process Standards into Your Math Routine
Grade level: 5-6
This workshop builds on the classic Problem Solving workshop offered in past semesters and earlier this fall. Once you have knowledge of the 14 problem types and various strategies children use to solve these problems, you’re ready to dig deeply into daily implementation.
These workshops are divided into grade level bands so that teachers can focus attention on developmentally appropriate problems for their students. The workshop will attend to grade level content standards while infusing the process standards into daily minilessons, independent work, and reflection.
The workshop for grades 5-6 will be co-facilitated by John Ulbright and Nicole Caulfield. John and Nicole are both researchers and practitioners, working across K-12 grade levels in Wayne Township schools. They present together regularly at state, regional, and national conferences (including National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) and have a growing reputation nationally as experts in GeoGebra and other areas of balanced math. The Partnership’s own Ryan Flessner says, “John and Nicole are two of my favorite math educators. They make me laugh while they make me think.”
