Curriculum Design and Classroom Organization

Curriculum Design & Classroom Organization

Michael Waski knows there are many components to a successful math classroom, including

  • Lesson structure

  • Use of materials

  • Individualization

  • Technology

  • Integration with other disciplines

Balancing these components is not always an easy task. This workshop provides teachers the tools to effectively incorporate these elements into their unique classroom situations. Teachers will walk away with a solid philosophical base for a math classroom, in addition to practical examples of structures to implement in their own environments.

The format for the workshop will be a series of lectures and discussions, as well as time for teachers to develop classroom and curriculum designs and get feedback on their designs.

The cost of the workshop is $375, or, you can register for this workshop and the adjoining, Later Algebra, for $700!

The event will be held at Beacon Academy. Free parking is available at the school. Participants are responsible for their own housing.

The workshop will run from 1:00-4:00pm on Wednesday, then 8:00am-4:00pm, Thursday and Friday. Lunch, snacks and coffee/tea are provided each day. 

Please arrive 15-20 minutes early on Wednesday to check in.
