So much content, so little time! If this is how you feel while implementing Eureka in your classroom, then this workshop is for you.  Spend the day learning protocols to determine how to decide which content in a module to omit and which content in a lesson to omit.  Use a Lesson Annotation Bookmark to plan your Eureka lessons more efficiently and effectively. 

Participants of this workshop will:

  • Determine which lessons can be omitted in a module without compromising the progression of mathematics.
  • Deepen understanding of the progression of mathematics in the module.
  • Annotate a lesson and determine content, which can be omitted without compromising the progression of mathematics.

This workshop supports Missouri Teaching Standards 1.1, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 7.1, and 7.2.

  • Location: “The Learning Commons” at Study Alternative School, 2343 W. Olive, Springfield, MO
