Overview

ANet’s National Group Learning Series   are virtual experiences that include opportunities to engage in active breakouts, learn and apply new equitable practices, reflect on and share learnings with others, and activate on clear next steps. In this math series, instructional/teacher leaders will deepen their understanding of leveraging high-quality tasks andre-engagement strategies to increase equitable instruction for students.

Session 1: Leveraging High-Quality Tasks to Advance Equitable Instruction in Math (10.16.20)

Pre-Work: 

  • Take a look at these 3-slides to ground in what makes a task “high-quality” and how might you translate this engagement in a virtual space.

Objectives: 

  • Recognize and respond to  root causes of inequitable  practices and student outcomes in mathematics.
  • Understand why high-quality tasks are an essential component of  equitable instruction.
  • Align on common design elements of high-quality math tasks.
  • Commit to actions that build knowledge of and practice leveraging  high quality tasks.

Materials: All materials and recordings can be found in this folder. 

Next steps: 

  • Attend a 30-60 minute huddle with your instructional leadership team who attended the other tracks to share headlines and determine your next steps.
  • Discuss with other instructional leaders and  teachers the school vision for equitable instruction in Math.
  • Discuss with influencers of Math planning how the elements of high quality tasks can be incorporated into planning processes.

Session 2: Supporting Multilingual Learners during Math Distance Learning   (11.13.20) 

Pre-Work: 

Objectives: 

  • Follow up on our work since October with high-quality tasks.
  • Understand the importance of the four domains of language (speaking, writing, reading, and listening) showing up in math classrooms.
  • Ground in Math Language Routines and analyze a lesson video of the Compare & Connect routine (MLR 7).
  • Create an action plan for supporting English learners in your school.

Materials: All materials and recordings can be found in this folder. 

Next steps: 

  • Create a plan for what you want EL support to look like in your building within the next two months, and how you will develop your teachers to do this. Some things we’ve discussed, for reference:
    • In-lesson modifications, like visuals and glossaries
    • Authentic communication with Math Language Routines, like Compare & Connect
  • Send your action plan to your coach or other accountability partner.
