This course is now over but we have a new webinar coming up on October 12th & 13th.

Come learn how to teach, coach, and facilitate guided math!

Guided math is a great instructional strategy. Everybody wants to do it, but how? In this engaging, educational and resource-filled institute, participants will learn how to do it! Send one or more staff members, or a team to learn how to support and facilitate professional development about guided math at the school site or the district level. They will see how to create standards-based (teks aligned) small group lessons that rock, workshop management strategies that work, and assessment tools that inform instruction! Dr. Nicki will teach about managing flexible groups, matching activities to students, incorporating the 4 must have workstations and using technology throughout the workshop. Each participant receives the book Guided Math in Action, access to the conference digital files & videos and a dice-in-action kit!

***PreConference Webinar will be held in early February. Post Conference Webinar will be held in May.

Join us to find out how to unlock the power of guided math today!
