LIVE WEBINAR: 3 kEYS TO SUCCESS WITH WORD PROBLEMS…AND IT AIN’T KEYWORDS!
Proven strategies to turn your students into word problem superstars!
THREE SESSIONS TO CHOOSE FROM
In this free webinar you’ll learn:
How to help students read to understand
Do you often hear yourself say, If only they would read!? It may be that they don’t know how to read for meaning! I’ll share a proven strategy for improving word problem comprehension. You’ll wish you’d known this yesterday!
The importance of visualization
Students who can’t solve word problems often lack the ability to visualize what’s happening in the problem. I’ll show you simple drawing techniques that lead to big returns!
The power of part/whole thinking
It sounds so simple–a whole is made of parts. We often apply part/whole thinking when working with numbers, but did you know it can help students solve word problems?
This webinar is for you if…
- Your students struggle to even get started with word problems. They seem to be able to endlessly stare at the blank page!
- Your students rush through their word problems and make careless mistakes. Did they even read the problem?
- Your students are doing all the steps you’ve taught them to solve word problems, but they still aren’t having success and their confidence is taking a hit.
A Personal Invitation from Donna…
I've been helping teachers make teaching math more effective and FUN for over 10 years.
Ssh, I have a secret. I didn’t always like teaching math! When I started teaching, I taught in the same way I had been taught. I modeled a procedure, we did some problems together, and then students practiced more problems independently. I often used tricks that I thought were benefitting my students, only to wonder why they didn’t really understand the math.
I didn’t feel successful, and neither did they.
So I changed my approach. I read and studied and experimented. Before long, my students were showing huge improvements! And we were LOVING math.
In this new webinar, I’ll share three fundamental strategies that supercharged my students’ ability to solve word problems.
If you’re committed to making 2022 the year you transform your math instruction, I can save you the time and effort that went into my own personal journey.
Choose the time that works best for you.
