New Page! New Videos!

Many of you have joined All Learners workshops and conferences, our annual conference was held in December but if you missed it we have uploaded several sessions to our very own YouTube channel. Videos from the conference are found on the new Talks and Presentation page. We plan to use this page to add additional material as well. Feel free to use the comment section, or our community page to share feedback and ideas for videos. 

On the website you will find the Keynote from Bob Laird. This address focuses on a few foundational ideas to consider as we tussle with what effective math instruction for all students means. It will discuss instructional actions at the teacher/student level, math standards and curriculum, and systemic issues and structures that either hinder or support rich and effective mathematics instruction for all students.


From using common classroom materials, such as ten frames and cards, for meaningful games, to considering how to gain the most out of each component of your math lesson these sessions will focus on engaging ALL learners in conceptual understanding. Experiences with students, trials and successes from the field, and tools used in actual math classrooms are shared by educators. These sessions will provide new ideas, questions, games or tasks that you can implement with your students.

Systems and Mindsets

Area leaders share their experiences with the important work of engaging all learners and providing instructional opportunities and systems of support for all learners. Schools and districts engage in doing what is best for learners, and in these sessions educators and leaders have the opportunity to learn from one another.
