DescriptionNCTM's landmark publication Principles to Actions connects research with practice. Specific, research-based teaching practices that are essential for a high-quality mathematics education for each and every student are combined with core principles to build a successful mathematics program at all levels.

1.  Establish mathematics goals to focus learning.
2.  Implement tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving.
3.  Use and connect mathematical representations.
4.  Facilitate meaningful mathematical discourse.
5.  Pose purposeful questions.
6.  Build procedural fluency from conceptual understanding.
7.  Support productive struggle in learning mathematics.
8.  Elicit and use evidence of student thinking.

On August 31 and September 1, Dr. Amber Vlasnik (ESU 6 Consultant & 2017 Teacher of the Year) will focus on the practices five through eight. Each day, participants will focus on two of the practices and have opportunities to collaboratively plan for classroom implementation with other teachers.
