    Talk 57: The Slice Is Right

    Talk 57: The Slice Is Right

    In this session, we will share strategies to develop sets of "thin sliced" questions. These questions are meant to have an accessible entry point and to progress to challenging questions, allowing students to work at their own pace and achieve their highest potential. We will share sets of questions from various secondary courses and topics. These questions can be used both in a traditional classroom and a "Thinking Classroom". Come prepared to make your own set

    Talk 56: Supporting Access and Inclusion for Students with Special Education Needs

    Talk 56: Supporting Access and Inclusion for Students with Special Education Needs

    The conversation around destreaming in Ontario has been ongoing due to the adjustments made to math curricula at the secondary level. As a response, elementary schools in the York Region District School Board have examined different levels of support for students who have been withdrawn on a long-term basis for mathematics instruction. This has included exploring opportunities for integration of students from withdrawal programs into homeroom classes. Join Elli and Jordan as they discuss their experiences collaborating with educators to implement High-Impact Instructional Practices into math programming anchored in universal design, critical consciousness, and culturally responsive and relevant pedagogy. We will examine how a Building Thinking Classrooms framework, along with minilessons, and deliberate practice supports greater access to mathematical content and opportunities for student inclusion.
