We now have the ability to post our Professional Development to ESCWorks!
Have you wanted to make math and science more interesting and meaningful for your
students? Are you wanting to make more real-world connections? Why not connect the
two content areas that support one another? Come out and learn how to analyze and
group frameworks for integration, utilize hands-on activities, and extend students
understanding of core content. This training consists of 2 professional development
days during the summer and classroom visits throughout the school year to support
Are you looking to deepen your understanding of fractions? Are you trying to find
new and interesting ways to teach fractions? During this 2-day training we will delve
into fractions developing a deeper understanding of our own content, as well as, developing
hands-on, robust activities for our students to enjoy! You will receive two books
along with materials for your classroom.
Technology and Manipulatives in the Classroom:
Are you wanting to increase your use of manipulatives in your classroom? Do you have
manipulatives that you are unsure of how to utilize? Are you needing more manipulatives?
We will be looking at a variety of manipulatives that are designed for use in particular
grade bands, along with their effective uses in the classroom. During the training
you will receive a tub of the manipulatives and materials used throughout the training.
