ST. CHARLES, Mo. – Teacher collaboration, constructive conversations and planning sessions are sometimes not enough to tackle the tough challenge of improving student performance across the board. Math educators who are struggling with the lack of progress their schools are making in terms of mathematical performance will receive fresh insight in Productive Partnerships: Tools and Strategies for Math Leaders, presented by ORIGO Education. The free edWebinar will introduce strategies to help educators cultivate intentional conversations before, during and after instructional learning.
Dr. Melinda Schwartz, a veteran educator, instructional specialist and former elementary school principal, will explore teacher-focused new ideas, methods and techniques specific to mathematics instruction.
“The job of an instructional leader is to inspire, motivate and support teachers on their personal journeys of reflection and continued growth. Educators need to get creative and find new approaches to engage, collaborate, and encourage each other that will transpire into significant math comprehension and progress in the classroom,” states Schwartz.
While ORIGO Education is a PreK-6 focused mathematical program, the Productive Partnerships: Tools and Strategies for Math Leaders edWebinar will be suitable for grades K-12. Schwartz will lead an interactive session beneficial for math education leaders, administrators, and math instructional coaches.
