Professional Development Workshop for Teachers

Teachers from the Greencastle-Antrim Middle School participated in a professional development workshop facilitated by Dr. Debbie Gochenaur on Friday, August 7, 2015 - Using Concrete Materials and Rich Tasks to Implement the PA CCSS: Algebraic Concepts, Functions, Function Building and Graphing. The workshop focused on integrating concrete materials into algebra lessons in order to help students develop a firm conceptual foundation of basic algebra concepts; by scaffolding on prior knowledge and the use of manipulatives, activities allow students to wrestle with rich tasks that require deeper thought and application through modeling.
