Open Up Resources K–5 Math: Diving In

Participants will explore content from Open Up Resources K–5 Math with colleagues to grasp a solid overview of the curriculum and problem-based learning. During the sessions, the educators will discuss the design structure of the resource, engage in effective instructional routines and teaching practices, and come to understand the cyclical and coherent nature of these materials.

Open Up Resources 6–8 Math: Year 2+

Participants will engage in sessions that strategically grow practice by problem solving, working through implementation challenges, and walking through identified problems of practice. Expert teachers of Open Up Resources 6–8 Math provide a safe space for growth, fellowship, and collaborative professional learning. Teachers will leave with ready to implement strategies and resources to use in their own classrooms.

Open Up High School Mathematics: Diving In

Sessions will focus on teaching with the Comprehensive Mathematics Instruction (CMI) Framework along with using the Effective Teaching Practices, Standards for Math Practice, and the Five Practices for facilitating discourse to revolutionize mathematics teaching and learning. Teachers will learn to use the Learning Cycle-based lesson design to help students develop procedural fluency with conceptual understanding by doing a deep-dive of Module One. This workshop will provide teachers with the sequence of modules and topics and demonstrate how these materials capture the vision of the Core Standards for High School Mathematics.

Open Up High School Mathematics: Year 2+

Sessions encourage teachers to take next steps in adjusting and improving their instruction by experiencing the curriculum in-depth. The facilitators will model how to implement the tasks focusing on the Learning Cycle and eliciting student thinking to achieve learning goals using videos from the field, student work, and modeling. Teachers will have the opportunity to dig into the big ideas of the Learning Cycle in 1-2 modules by experiencing each task and understanding the progression of learning for students.

EL Education K–5 Language Arts: Year 2+

These sessions provide teachers with the rationale, research and procedures for evidence-based practices that support strengthening ELA. Participants will build and enhance their knowledge of evidence-based practices found in OUR curricula and will do a “deep dive” into their grade level resources and lessons.
