Overview

LD—Learning Differences, Difficulties, or Disabilities: Many of our students experience these terms firsthand, but no matter the case, it’s important that you don’t consider them a Deficit! Our job is to help all learners be successful math users. According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (2014), an excellent mathematics program requires that all students have access to a high-quality mathematics curriculum. In this webinar, we will explore some of the strategies that you can use to help students access math ideas so they can be successful math users. These strategies can be adapted to any level and used with any math content area.

    Audience

    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • Adult basic education math teachers at all levels of math ability and comfort.
Description

This 75-minute webinar is for anyone involved in adult numeracy instruction who wants ideas for helping students develop a strong core foundation without relying on mnemonics to try to remember procedures. Participants will look at research on learning disabilities as it relates to math, try out some strategies for themselves to add to their teaching toolkit, and watch a student illustrate the power of such strategies.
