Connecting Math and Literacy

The Contra Costa Office of Education is sponsoring an event entitled: Connecting Math and Literacy

Join California Teacher of the Year, Alex Kajitani, in a full-day math professional development experience in which teachers will explore, discuss, practice and reflect upon high-leverage strategies that are easy to implement, and will get students on the path toward achieving the Common Core Math Standards.

Specific topics to be covered include:
• Getting students to talk about math in a way that is meaningful and relevant
to their lives
• Getting students writing about math, and using math language to argue,
communicate, and justify their thinking
• Teaching students to persevere in attempting, evaluating and solving “word
problems”
• Addressing the negative stereotypes about math that exist in society, and how
to “Make Math Cool”
• Strategies, activities, and games that can be used to engage students while
teaching the Common Core
Target Audience: K-12 Math Teachers, District and Site Administrators, Instructional Coaches
