GEAR UP: Summer Math Institute

June 28, 2021

June 28-30, 2021

Registration Closes May 12, 2021

Every child deserves access to a quality education and the opportunity to earn a college degree. Arizona’s economic prosperity depends on increasing the number of residents who have a degree or a workforce credential. Since 2000, Arizona GEAR UP has strengthened the pipeline leading to educational attainment on behalf of the State in two ways:

  • One, by increasing high school graduation and postsecondary enrollment for thousands of students from diverse communities across Arizona
  • And two, by leveraging resources to support Arizona’s education priorities and expanding capacity to make local and state initiatives possible
Join the Arizona K12 Center at their GEAR UP: Summer Math Institute to learn how to help Arizona students succeed in mathematics.

On Day 1, Joseph Assof whose classroom was featured extensively in the book, Visible Learning in Mathematics, will show participants how to design high-impact instruction so all students demonstrate more than a year’s worth of mathematics learning for a year spent in school.

On Day 2, Olivia Amador, co-author of the book, The Teacher Clarity Playbook, will be building on the learning from Day 1. Teacher clarity has an effect size of 0.75 according to John Hattie. Day 2 will help participants align lessons, objectives, and outcomes of learning seamlessly, so that the classroom hours flow productively for everyone.

On Day 3, John SanGiovanni, author of Productive Struggle, will teach participants how to value and harness the struggles that students experience and help them develop good habits of productive struggle.
At the end of each day, participants will learn how to utilize the Professional Learning Plan designed by the Arizona K12 Center to apply the new learning to their practice.
