Helping Math Zombies Reclaim Their Math Zorch - It's Never Too Late
Session 1a: An insidious and debilitating strain of zombieism has recently come to light. Because its symptoms appear only upon exposure to math, sufferers can hide their affliction -often for years. Fortunately, research into how the brain learns & unlearns offers these 'math zombies' hope.

Grades without the Grades: Using Feedback to Inform Learning
Session 3b: Without grades on a test, students become more driven to see what mistakes they have made and how they made them. They become more open to have conversations on how to make corrections in their thinking and communication of solutions. Non-numerical feedback is not limited to tests, and can include technology, SBG (even if you don’t use this), and can shape your instruction daily. Making this shift in your teaching doesn’t have to be difficult, but takes practice, and can be truly transformative.

Team Tests
Session 3m: Team Tests - How might we create relevant, spiraled, and collaborative assessment experiences for student teams? Using CPM’s Team Roles, each team member has a specific role that engages him or her in the collaborative experience. All team members have a voice and play a part in completing the assessment. These assessments will challenge high achieving students who need their teammates in order to be successful and will engage lower-achieving students to take ownership of a specific role within the team.

Supporting Underprepared Students with Grade Level Content
No matter what the course, there are students enrolled who are underprepared and lack the critical knowledge necessary to be successful.  Yet the research is consistent that students can learn more than one year of content in one year of instruction.  So if we give students access, how do we successfully support them even when they seem to be misplaced?  This session will be led by a CPM Algebra 1 9th grade teacher in a school with a student population that consists of 85% on free and reduced lunch and over 70% minority all placed in heterogeneous classrooms.  Learn from his approach, how he works with CPM, and what is and isn't working to help his 9th grade students of all abilities have success in his Algebra 1 class.
