Effective RTI Strategies (Cheryl Henjum)

Build Mathematical Fluency within the Common Core, State and Provincial Standards

Presented by Cheryl Henjum

Feeling overwhelmed with the demands of being a teacher during the age of “standards?” Then this is the workshop for YOU! Kim Sutton, creator of Creative Mathematics and Cheryl Henjum, a Kim Sutton Associate, have put together a workshop that will guide teachers towards mathematical success. Through the intentional use of “Response to Inter­vention” strategies, teachers will feel empowered and inspired after they leave this workshop. Most state expectations require teachers to document and show progress of every student within the classroom; this session will provide teachers with tools and effective resources that will help engage students, while making the mathematical learning within the classroom FUN and ENGAGING for ALL students! Throughout the workshop teachers will create and practice various activities and games that were created by Kim Sutton. Through the use of these activities teachers will be able to actively engage every student regardless of their mathematical level. Literature re­sources, songs and dances will grab the attention of students who need to move throughout the day; and how the use of games will allow students to work together in cooperative learning groups. Teachers will also be given user-friendly progress monitoring tools and assessments to track individual student’s progress and the overall classroom progress. An ob­jective checklist (built by grade) will also be provided to teachers as they track the needs of each student and their individual math level. Teachers will create and use checks for understanding, assessments and LOTS of games and activities that make learning meaningful and fun for everyone! Teachers will leave the workshop feeling excited about returning to their classroom with tools that will help them guide students towards mathemati­cal success through the use of “Effective RTI” strategies! Come join me for some mathematical FUN!
