The members of this group will explore OLA's Curriculum Resource Guide together. Our aims and objectives in this work are varied. 1. We will engage in productive, thoughtful discussions about the guide in order to understand its role in our ELE programs. 2. We will examine how current trends in the field of second language acquisition inform our work as educators. 3. We will determine how the guide can support the creation of up-to-date, research-based ELD curricula that meets the needs of today's English learners. The course discussion will take place on GoodReads. Use the following link to join! https://bit.ly/2sQXiF2 Participants will also need to download a copy of the Next Generation Curriculum Guide found on the MA DESE website: http://www.doe.mass.edu/ele/instruction/ More

Participants will develop a deep understanding how five research-based strategies (ask yourself questions, sentence frames and starters, annotation, the Four R's and turn-and-talks) can be used to help students with learning disabilities develop mathematical thinking. They will learn about six accessibility areas (conceptual processing, visual-spatial processing, language, attention, organization and memory) math learners must use when doing mathematics. They will see how the essential strategies support students as they work in each of the accessibility areas by engaging in two instructional routines designed to develop quantitative reasoning. Student Learning Outcomes: This Twelve-hour course will provide participants with five research-based strategies to help students with learning disabilities learn how to think and reason mathematically. Participants will leave: Understanding what it looks like when students reason mathematically – quantitatively, structurally, and through repetition. Knowing 5 essential strategies to engage students, support their development of mathematical thinking, and develop independence. Ready to support each and every learner to develop as mathematicians.
