In this series of five 2-hour virtual workshops, teachers will be introduced to the Open Up Resources 6-8/IM 6-12 Math Curriculum and how it is designed to help students develop strong conceptual understanding by inviting them to make sense of increasingly challenging problems. In each session, participants will have the opportunity to explore the resources from both a student and a teacher perspective, and to experiment with strategic planning approaches tailored to the unique structures of the curriculum. The process of coming together for multiple sessions will allow teachers to reflect in between meetings, helping them deepen their understanding of the curriculum over time. This introduction to OUR 6-8 Math will leave participants feeling confident and eager to continue to work with this problem-based approach to math instruction.
