Accessible Math

November 2018

Les Staves is back!

Les Staves literally wrote the book on mathematics for our most complex learners. The new edition is out and you can see the e-resources here. The book delves into instructional strategies and research that aligns nicely with the Emergent Literacy Academy held each summer here at OS with Dr. David Koppenhaver and Dr. Karen Erickson.


Les will be doing a LIVE webinar with us December 10th at 5pm which is 10pm in England and he's nearly 80, so we cannot ask him to do it any later. Details and links to register will be emailed soon. We are planning to record the session, so don't worry if you have to miss the live event.
