Overview

*If you attended the original webinar of the same name that was offered in Spring 2020, be aware this two-part series covers the same content, only spread over two shorter webinars instead of one longer one.*

Are you looking for engaging online math content that allows students to learn independently at an appropriate pace and with the tools and resources most accessible to them? Do you wish you could easily create assignments for your multilevel classes from one online source and know that the content and rigor are aligned to the standards? Or that your ESOL students could continue to work on math and have the language support they need to complete the activities and lessons remotely? What about tracking student progress and time on task for lessons you assign?

In this two-part online workshop, we will explore how CK-12 can do all of the above for you and your students. All that is needed is internet access and a computer, tablet, or smart device. CK-12 even has its own learning management system if you don’t already have one, but it also works seamlessly with Google Classroom, Canvas, and Schoology. In this session we’ll focus on the math content; however, CK-12 also includes lessons on science, social studies, and writing and spelling. In other words, you can use this one site to pull multiple lessons and activities. Best of all — everything on their site is completely FREE!

    Audience

    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • ABE and ASE math teachers at all levels of math ability and comfort
Description

This two-part webinar is for anyone struggling to find appropriate, leveled math content for distance learning. Participants will explore the CK-12 site first as a student by working through an introductory percent lesson. We’ll identify key features of the FlexBooks design that allow students to take notes online, highlight important text, engage with interactive activities, explore simulations, and even translate the text into other languages.

We will then examine the site from the teacher’s perspective. We’ll take time to setup and enroll students in a class, identify appropriate assignments to give to the class, review reports on student progress and time on tasks, and look at how to create online discussions for a class. You should leave the webinar with a class setup for students with at least one assignment ready to be issued.

  • Part 1 of this webinar is Thursday, July 16 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m.
  • Part 2 of this webinar is Thursday, July 23 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m.

You must attend both sessions if you wish to receive a certificate of completion. Please contact sherry_soares@terc.edu with questions.

NOTE: Priority seating is given to Massachusetts teachers from Department of Elementary and Secondary Education-funded programs. If you are a registrant from another state, you will be put on a waiting list. If space is available, we will contact you roughly a week before the event to confirm your registration.
