Making differentiation doable for early career teachers: Multiplication and Division

How confident do you feel about teaching maths in years 3-6? Not sure how to cater for the wide range of needs in your classroom for Multiplication and Division concepts? Through this interactive three-part workshop, Stephanie and Samantha will share with you practical tips for ensuring that all students are learning in maths lessons every day.

During your time together, Stephanie and Samantha will share with you some of her favourite tips and tools to:

– help you make sense of what the word ‘differentiation’ actually means
– help you break down the syllabus content so that you are able to plan for differentiation with confidence.

You will then have the opportunity to experience what high-quality differentiation looks like in the upper primary classroom as you engage in a Year 3 Multiplication and Division task. This is a task you can easily implement in your classroom the following Monday! All participants will leave the workshop with a copy of the planning tool, language word walls and blackline masters of all resources used in the workshop.

P.S. Stephanie says: “Just in case you don’t believe me, I am bringing along my mentee, Sammi McCracken, who is one of the most passionate early career teachers I have ever met. We can’t wait to meet you!”
