MATH330: Differentiating Math Lessons for a Range of Learners (K-8) To meet the needs of a range of learners in the mathematics classroom, teachers are called upon to differentiate instruction. The need for differentiation is stronger than ever as districts strive to implement the Common Core State Standards with rigor and equity to promote the success of all students. Providing instruction that is differentiated and targeted to students’ strengths and needs is a powerful practice for improving math learning. This K-8 course stands out from more general offerings on differentiating instruction because it provides specific suggestions for teaching standards-based mathematics. Teachers will learn powerful approaches and models for planning and implementing differentiated math lessons that are tailored to their students’ diverse needs. They will take away strategies, planning tools and resources for applying the ideas in their classroom practice.

RDLA400: Developing Passionate Readers in a Digital World (K-6) As educators, we fully realize the power of reading! We appreciate how it fills us with emotion, takes us on adventures, and opens a gateway to higher learning and understanding. This course provides specific strategies and tools that will help your students understand and know the joy of reading.
