Friday March 03, 2023 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM - Webinar


To realize the surprising capability of young children, including children with disabilities, to learn math, research suggests using Learning Trajectories. Learning trajectories have been placed at the core of some standards, curricula, and approaches to teaching. We will introduce why learning trajectories are so important, especially for appropriate teaching for children with disabilities, and then do a “deep dive” into a learning trajectory for one topic. In so doing, we will also feature how daily activities and routines can be used to promote mathematical understanding and introduce a new, powerful resource: Based on 20 years of research, the Learning and Teaching with Learning Trajectories (LTLT or [LT]2 ) tool helps trainers, teachers, and families to promote high-quality teaching and learning and equity.
