On November 16th, SET-BC hosted Dr. Jennifer Katz as she presented a very well attended session entitled “Numeracy to Support Diverse Learners”. Approximately 50 people attended the session physically at the SET-BC Provincial Centre while others attended remotely in SD8, SD57, SD71 and SD92.
During the session, participants learned how to develop goals and design instruction to help diverse learners visualize, experience and think deeply, critically a nd creatively about mathematical concepts and skills and their application across the curriculum and the real world. Assessment practices, case studies, sample lessons and student work samples were shared during the day long session that was enjoyed and appreciated by attendees all over the province.
Thanks Dr. Katz for presenting this topic as many teams are looking for effective ways to support the numeracy development of all learners in their classrooms!
