Teaching the Tough Topics
Presenter: Greg Tang 

This session is FULL - if you would like to be placed on a waiting list, please click HERE.

Are you ready to tackle and teach the topics kids struggle with most? Greg Tang’s workshop for grade 1-6 teachers focuses on critical concepts that are barriers to student success. Topics include:

  1. Number sense & estimation
  2. Fact & procedural fluency
  3. Place value & rounding
  4. Fractions & decimals
  5. Multistep word problems

We will explore why students are having trouble, what gaps need to be filled, and which teaching methods are most effective. Greg will also show you cleverly-designed math centers that reinforce key concepts and give kids the repetition and practice they need. This is one workshop you won't want to miss!
