Guided Math

At the September Curriculum Council meeting Susan Hemphill shared some resources available to support mathematics instruction. With new TEKS teachers are challenged with meeting the needs of all students while filling gaps and implementing rigorous new math standards. ESC Region 13 is also providing professional development opportunities to assist with this challenge. We invite teachers to come explore how to build each student’s mathematical proficiency with Small-Group Instruction.

Dr. Nicki Newton has been an educator for more than 20 years, working in inner city schools on both the East and West Coasts with student populations ranging from pre-kindergarteners through doctoral students. She has worked on developing Math Workshop and Guided Math Institutes around the country. Most recently, she has been helping schools to integrate their state adopted mathematics standards and think deeply about how to teach these within a Math Workshop Model. Dr. Nicki works with teachers, coaches, and administrators to make math come alive by considering the powerful impact that a small-group learning structure can have on student achievement. The goal of Guided Math is for students to become proficient mathematical thinkers who have conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, strategic competence, adaptive reasoning, and mathematical confidence.
