Series Overview

The first standard for mathematical practice in the Common Core is “make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.” But, for many students, making sense of problems is the most challenging task they face.


SERESC is offering three workshops with Bill Atwood to respond to these questions:

  • How often do students abandon a problem because they don’t understand the necessary math or test vocabulary?
  • How often do students get lost in a problem because they don’t attend to the details or don’t read carefully to find the question and key information?
  • And further, how often do students neglect to show their work because their writing skills are undeveloped or they lack a deep mathematical understanding?


In this engaging workshop series, teachers will learn powerful, research-based strategies that build the critical reading and writing skills, fluency and conceptual knowledge needed for success.
