Target Audience: Special Educators, Math Interventionists


Dates: October 23 & 24, 2017; 8:30 am registration; 9 – 3:30 pm

Using key components of his book Solving for Why and his work with the All Learners Project, John Tapper will present a sensible and effective approach for serving students who are on Individual Education Plans for Math (K-8). The approach outlined in this workshop includes:

· How to write IEPs using a trajectory of High Leverage Concepts to focus instruction
· Using High Leverage Concepts to target instruction on the most important math understanding
· Conducting Clinical Interviews to determine student thinking and design intervention that works
· Working with classroom teachers to design Menu activities for students below grade level
· Helping parents to understand the needs of their children in math
Participants will leave with new skills they can put into practice in the new school year for more successful work with students on IEPs who struggle with math.
