About the Session

Let x be the number of classes in a semester, y be the complexity of the classroom, and z be your sanity. How does one maximize z while addressing the constant increase of y and the limited number of x? Dave Martin will share his success story of how he challenged many traditional practices of teaching high school math which resulted in more students with deeper understanding of essential concepts. Rooted in research, come and learn how to implement high effective teaching strategies while at the same time addressing "redos, rewrites, and retests". The series will focus on possible ways to start your own journey towards an "Outcome Based" classroom which can truly challenge the comforted and comfort the challenged.

This learning opportunity is being offered through a grant from Alberta Education.
