Using Learning Intentions and Success Criteria to Improve Teacher Clarity
Teacher clarity has a 0.75 effect size on student learning (Hattie, 2015) and it begins with clearly communicating learning intentions and success criteria. Classroom video and examples bring clarity to writing and using learning intentions and success criteria. Learn how a small change in your practice can have a huge impact on student learning.

Helping teachers develop manageable instructional practices to elicit and use the mathematical thinking of all students to inform instruction
How do you help teachers make sense of student thinking, ask meaningful questions, use instructional strategies to engage all students in sharing their ideas, and use what they learn about students' mathematical reasoning to guide instruction? We will  include instructional strategies and classroom videos as we share ideas to help you support teachers, particularly focusing on engaging all students in persevering, sharing ideas, and making connections. Leave with practical recommendations that can be implemented immediately.

Paradigm Shift: Changing the Culture of Mathematics and Learning in Schools
Society has a math problem, and it's not one that can be solved by traditional methods. To improve outcomes at a significant scale in our education system, we must become adept at changing the culture of learning. In this presentation, MIND Research Institute's Vice President of Content Creation, Nigel Nisbet, will demonstrate how neuroscience, motivational research, and innovative technology can transform mathematics and learning for students, teachers, and parents.

Math Intervention: Strategies to Help Students Catch Up
Struggling learners deserve programs that help them catch up. However, typical support classes focus on below grade level skills - an insidious form of tracking that does little to help students do better in their core mathematics class. We will explore how principles from intervention research can be applied to build effective programs and deliver them in the classroom. Stories from the field of challenges and successes will be included.
