Are your students with disabilities meeting the math requirements for middle and high school? Do they have the skills to meet and successfully master the standards in Algebra One? Are there structures in place for special education and general education teachers to collaborate effectively to meet the needs of students with disabilities?
Count Me In: Hands on Algebra is a two-day professional learning opportunity that will focus on inclusive practices for teaching mathematics for middle and high school students with learning disabilities. Teachers will walk away with a conceptual understanding of the learning progressions within algebraic reasoning. Teachers will also experience collaboration strategies that will support all students in meeting the High School Algebra standards.
We strongly encourage school teams of special education and general education teachers who teach mathematics in Grade 6 through High School Algebra to register. Participants will be required to attend both in-person training days. The cost is $25 (lunch is not provided). Parking at the University of Arizona campus costs $8 per day.
