These professional development sessions are intended for administrators and teachers who want to learn more about using Excel Math and discover best practices for implementing Excel Math lessons in the classroom.
We offer two different Professional Development seminars: one for users new to Excel Math (Initial P.D.) and the other (Next Step P.D.) for schools that have used Excel Math for a period of time.
For the Initial P.D.: The Excel Math Professional Development gives teachers instructional strategies (best practices) for effective direct instruction and tips to take full advantage of the three components of Excel Math. Plus, you will learn how to utilize the regular assessment in Excel Math for maximum instruction. Because Excel Math emphasizes Critical Thinking instead of fill-in-the-blank answers, the Excel Math lessons are an outstanding bridge to the new requirements of the Common Core Standards. Additionally, this in-service includes how to effectively blend Excel Math with an adopted core curriculum for maximum instruction in cases where Excel Math is used as a supplement.
For the Next Step P.D.: "Excel Math—Your Bridge to the Common Core" explores in more depth the specifics of Excel Math as an outstanding bridge to the new requirements of the Common Core Standards and reviews Instructional Strategies outlined in the Initial Professional Development.
The fee for each in-service seminar is minimal—to cover travel costs from California. Professional Development seminars are subject to availability. Generally, each session is a little under two hours in length.
