Getting Started with Math Language Routines

Focus Area: OUR 6-8 / IM 6-12 Math


Phase: Targeted Support

Available Now


The Math Language Routines Virtual Workshop Series contains four different 2-hour virtual workshops created to serve as your learning community’s deep dive into the Math Language Routines within the OUR 6-8/IM 6-12 Math curriculum.  This experience is a series of collaborative, hands-on workshops designed to support participants to understand the design of the MLRs, experience them as learners, and incorporate them into their plans. Using these routines leads to increased access to the math for all learners through more scaffolding and differentiation focused on language within lessons.

This workshop is part of a series. Explore the other workshop sessions below:
