Dear TLQP Friends:
Please join us for our March 10th TLQP Workshop at Binghamton University as we greet warmer weather (we hope)!
Dr. Sweeney has a great program lined up for us.
We will focus on Marion Small’s 2012 classic, Good Questions: Great ways to Differentiate Marthematics Instruction. We will discuss ways to adjust mathematics instruction to meet the needs of students at different developmental levels—a critical element in differentiating instruction for all students. Small focuses on two core strategies for differentiating mathematics instruction: open questions and parallel tasks.
Open questions are framed so that all students can respond, regardless of the stage of mathematical development. We will investigate the process for designing such questions and provide many examples across content strands and grade levels.
Parallel tasks are Small’s version of tiered assignments. With tiered assignments, students all work on the same big idea but are engaged in tasks that reflect different levels of complexity. Designing effective tiered assignments in mathematics demands deep mathematical understanding. The book provides lots of ready-to-go parallel tasks across content strands and grade levels.
Everyone attending will get a copy of the book!
So come, share some professional time with your colleagues.This invitation is open to all our TLQP friends in both cohorts: everyone is welcome.
