Who can attend: Zone 1 Instructional and Curriculum Leaders and coaches, school and division leaders Administrators(Teachers invited by their school instructional coaches or leaders)
This session will be a working session where teachers dive deep into the Organizing Ideas, the Learning Outcomes, the Knowledge, Understandings and the Skills and Procedures (KUSPs) of the new Alberta Math Curriculum. The goal of the session will be to have working documents (by grade) that curriculum leaders and teachers can share with others in their schools and divisions.
Teachers will collaboratively examine what is new to the Math curriculum, and reflect on what they already teach and do in this curriculum. They will be offered suggestions, review documents other divisions have worked on and be provided a template to divide the learning outcomes and the KUSPs into report card terms.
This session is aimed at school/division leaders and lead teachers, however all teachers are welcome to attend. It is highly recommended that those who participate are familiar with and have some experience with the ‘old’ K - 3 Math curriculum so comparisons between the old curriculum and the new curriculum can be made and easily divided into three terms throughout the year. Less experienced participants may want to consider bringing along an experienced lead teacher to work alongside them.
My name is Tracie Anthony, and I am the District Numeracy Coordinator for Grande Prairie Public School Division.
In my years of being a classroom teacher, I developed a strong commitment to the philosophy and the principles of math education. I have a strong belief; that through our passions and our collective vision (collaborative practices, optimal learning, purposeful engagement, assessment, and effective leadership) we can enable all students to reach their individual goals promoting student success. I have delivered many professional development in-services around the Alberta Math Curriculum. I have worked with the NRLC around the Peace Region. On top of that, I have participated in many division level and NRLC math cohorts from grades K-12.
I look forward to working with you and striving for us all to become confident, lifelong learners of math.
