Two new reports are now available from our Mathematics Leadership CoP!
For more ML CoP information, resources, and events, please visit mathnetwork.ca/math-leadership.
Our Critical Transitions CoP has launched a new website focused on the transition from Grade 8-9 Mathematics which features introductory videos (English/French), downloadable infographics, and links to other key resources.
Visit mkncrossingthedivide.ca to learn about Gr 8-9 transition support strategies, math myths debunked, online resources/supports, and more!
The results of our Critical Transitions CoP‘s Kindergarten Educator survey are now available. Please share our summary infographic widely! Stay tuned for the full paper, available in December 2018.
In Spring 2017, members of our Critical Transitions CoP began a project in locally developed Grade 9 classrooms in partnership with Lakehead University and Lakehead Public Schools. In June 2017, in-depth semi-structured interviews of three teachers at the partner high school who had or were teaching the Grade 9 Locally Developed course were conducted. Throughout the project, a number of new classroom resources, lessons, and so on were designed, field tested and revised, and this work is on-going.
To learn about the project so far, check out their full report, “Revisioning the Three R’s from the Ground Up: Relationships, Resilience, and Resources.” A 1-page summary is also available here.
