2020 HELIX Revisited
25. Math in the Real World: Teaching Meaningful Standards-based Math Part 1
Sunday January 31, 2021 - 12:01 AM - Online
Sunday February 28, 2021 - 12:01 AM - Online
This session will focus on a 6-step process that teachers can follow to plan meaningful standards-based math to students with significant cognitive disabilities. The process is designed to help teachers contextualize math concepts from state standards within meaningful real-world applications, increasing student generalization. Using a tell-show-try-apply framework, teachers will have opportunities to work through the 6-step process during the session to begin planning instruction for their own students.
Participants will be able to:
- Describe and use the 6 steps to build a math lesson that incorporates evidence-based practices to teach grade-aligned standards.
- Describe how the four components of modified schema-based instruction help make problem solving accessible.
- Write accessible word problems.
