About the Session:

TARGET AUDIENCE: ALL K-6 CLASSROOM TEACHERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND

This webinar series is designed to be highly interactive and practical.  Participants will have opportunity to come together on-line to discuss key concepts from Julie Stern’s book Tools for Teaching Conceptual Understanding and to consider how to bring these ideas into practice in their classrooms. Each webinar will dive specifically in to 1 or 2 chapters in the book. 

Through this webinar book study, teachers will explore, use, and reflect on the impact of Julie’s easily implemented and practical tools to help students uncover conceptual relationships and transfer them to new situations. This includes strategies for:

  • introducing conceptual learning to students
  • how to assess conceptual understanding
  • how to differentiate concept-based instruction
