Shifting from Remembering How to Understanding Why

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Join Featured Presenter Steve Leinwand for this look at supporting conceptional understanding through effective differentiated instruction. 

You'll look at a range of middle school examples that pair the deadliness of "remembering how" to follow rules and get answers with the excitement and importance of "understanding why" to build conceptual understanding.  The focus will be on alternative approaches and multiple representations - the essence of effectively differentiated instruction. 

Note: This session will be offered twice; please sign up for only one of the two sessions.
