Professional Development Training: Reaching for Joy in Math

Are you looking to bring executive function strategies into your math classroom? Our upcoming webinar, Reaching for Joy in Math Learning: Embracing Executive Function Processes and Strategic Instruction for Students Who Struggle, offers practical and engaging ways to help diverse learners apply executive function strategies in math.

Led by John Steinberg, Director of Educational Services at the Institute for Learning and Development, this 75-minute session will explore important executive function processes as they pertain specifically to math. Through this lens, you will develop a deeper understanding of:

  • Ways to integrate strategy instruction into the math curriculum
  • How to establish regular teaching practices to support your students’ executive function skills including cognitive flexibility, memory, planning and organization, and self-monitoring

Math problem solving can be difficult, especially for students with attentional weaknesses, executive function weaknesses and/or learning disabilities. Using these approaches will boost student motivation, build confidence, and create more successful math learners. In short — increase the joy of learning math!

Register and join us for Reaching for Joy in Math Learning on Thursday, April 1 from 4:00 p.m. – 5:15 p.m. EST. We look forward to seeing you!

Reaching for Joy in Math Learning is part of our Executive Function Essentials training series.
