MAV is pleased to offer members a very special offer: 10% off the price of the seminar:
'Direct Instruction at Work: Math Mastery Series Seminar'.
Based on meticulously scripted lessons the Farkota Direct Instruction model strikes a balance between teacher-directed and student-directed learning. Recognising that some skills are better acquired through one approach and some through the other, the Math Mastery Series maximises every benefit a mental math program is capable of yielding.
Dr Rhonda Farkota, a Senior Research Fellow at the Australian Council for Educational Research, will give a practical overview of the Math Mastery Series programs Junior Elementary Math Mastery, Junior Elementary Math Mastery+, and Elementary Math Mastery.
Attendees will learn how these programs help all students, but particularly those who:
Have not reached required numeracy level for their age
Have low motivation to learn, or low self-efficacy
Are classified as at-risk learners
Have difficulty concentrating, and would benefit from repeated structured teaching and practice.
Dr Farkota will also address self-efficacy, and the pivotal role it plays in both teaching and learning. An opportunity for questions and general discussion will follow.
Standard 3: Plan for and implement effective teaching and learning 3.2 Plan, structure and sequence learning programs Plan and implement well-structured learning and teaching programs or lesson sequences that engage students and promote learning. Standard 5: Assess, provide feedback and report on student learning. 5.2 Provide feedback to students on their learning Demonstrate an understanding of the purpose of providing timely and appropriate feedback to students about their learning. 5.4 Interpret student data Use student assessment data to analyse and evaluate student understanding of subject/content, identifying interventions and modifying teaching practice.
This seminar is being held at Independent Schools Victoria, on Thursday 23rd of February and members of MAV will receive 10% off the price of the seminar; when you book your place type the code: MAV17 into the space available.
