Teachers, Administrators in Grades 3 - 12
How do you run a classroom where each student is working on a different thing at a different speed? In this workshop, 5th grade Math Teacher, Tim Musser will guide participants to an understanding of his instructional design model that meets students where they are. Rather than forcing students to follow the same path in lockstep with one another, practicing page after page of skills they already have down, this model gives them a chance to build the metacognitive muscle they’ll need to become lifelong learners.
