Singapore Math Training Workshop (Elementary) Registration required
Learn about the Singapore Math methods that focuses on mastery achieved through intentional sequencing of concepts. Some of the key features of the approach include the CPA (Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract) progression, number bonds, bar modeling, and mental math. Instead of pushing through rote memorization, students learn to think mathematically and rely on the depth of knowledge they gained in previous lessons.
Now more than ever schools are taking time to prioritize not just students' academic learning, but students' wellbeing as well. Also known as SEL, social-emotional learning is the process through which students develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions, and make responsible and caring decisions. During this workshop, participants will explore the five core social and emotional competencies of self-awareness; self-management; social awareness; responsible decision-making; and relationship skills and also experience a lesson or two from HTA's own advisory curriculum. Come learn strategies to help your student navigate this important aspect of their personal development!

"Making Math Visible" Workshop (K-2) Registration required
Making math visible for early learners is essential to establishing a strong foundation in Standards for Mathematical Practice. Students who have strong number sense and are flexible with numbers tend to be more successful as they progress to each math level. In this workshop, participants will practice hands-on math strategies using various math manipulatives to solidify important concepts.
"Filling the Gaps in Middle School Math" Workshop (6-8) Registration required
There's no such thing as a math person. So why do some students seem to get it, and some don't? It's because math is sequential - new math concepts build on previously learned concepts. What happens if a few concepts get missed, or not mastered completely? Over time, those seemingly small gaps begin to widen to a point where inevitable frustration sets in. This workshop will focus on sharing specific tips and ideas for finding and filling the math gaps so our students can move forward with confidence in their ability to 'do' math.
Math Workshop provides students an opportunity to be introduced to new math concepts, apply math strategies in a variety of ways, and articulate new understandings through verbal or written sharing. In this workshop, participants will move through the various components of M.A.T.H. Workshop in order to implement with their students: Meet with the teacher, At your seat, Technology, and Hands-on (using math manipulatives to solidify concepts).
Deepen your understanding of the foundational blocks of early literacy which include: vocabulary knowledge, conventions of print, knowledge of letters, linguistic awareness, and phoneme-grapheme correspondence. This workshop is ideal for Learning Coaches of early learners, as well as those seeking reinforcement strategies.
Seven Habits of Highly Effective (Teen) Readers (MS/HS) Registration required
The acquisition of reading skills shouldn’t end just because your student has transitioned beyond elementary school. In fact, the skills developed during the adolescent literacy stage are critical to ensure that students are proficient in extracting meaning from content-area and advanced narrative text. This session will highlight the seven habits of highly effective readers.
Dismantling the Myth of “Learning to Read, Reading to Learn” (3-5) Registration required
Once students have learned to read, there is often an assumption that students transition to a phase called, ‘reading to learn.’ Though this may be true in part, specific strategies to deepen reading comprehension remain critical at this stage of reading development. This workshop will be dedicated to exploring active reading strategies for upper grade students.
