Description – Effective elementary, middle, and high school mathematics teachers provide a continuum of instructional support to help students learn essential mathematical concepts and master new important skills. Additionally, math teachers devote significant efforts and instructional time to make sure students do not forget what they have previously learned, which is extremely important in the study of mathematics.
The State Support Team Region 1 is excited to bring Dr. Paul Riccomini in for a three day PD Math Series on Retention Strategies in the Math Classroom. This series will provide teachers with specific strategies for organizing both instruction and students’ studying of material to facilitate learning, remembering, and applying critical mathematical concepts and skills in new situations.
Dr. Paul J. Riccomini is an experienced classroom teacher, author, mathematician, and leading special education expert who has taught mathematics to both general and special education students in inclusive settings. He is co-author of the best-selling Response to Intervention in Math and Developing Number Sense through the Common Core. Currently, he is a Professor of education at Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Riccomini brings both strong content knowledge and a focus on robust collaborative relationships to his teaching experiences with general and special educators. Additional information about Dr. Riccomini can be found by clicking on his name.
Participants will earn 6 contact hours per session equaling 18 for the series and are strongly encouraged to attend all three sessions.
Please Note that Day 2 and 3 are at a different location than Day 1.
