Singapore Math offers new summer webinar series for educators

Singapore Math publisher Marshall Cavendish Education has introduced a new, professional development webinar series for teachers of grades K-5 scheduled throughout August.

These Back-2-School with Math professional development math webinars give teachers confidence and inspiration as they learn math strategies on planning a successful school year for students, and parent involvement using Mathematical Practice Standards. After teachers in a recent customer survey listed back-to-school topics at the top of their wish lists for professional development, the new webinars were designed to help teachers establish routines and best practices at the beginning of the school year to improve student success in math. The live online trainings are provided by outstanding teacher presenters during a small window of time before school starts that saves most of a busy teacher’s day to get ready for back to school. Teachers can interact with the trainers and each other.

Back-2-School with Math webinars support any math curriculum or classroom style. Educators are invited to attend an affordable 60-minute webinar to learn methods on how to have a successful school year with some planning to improve students’ learning experiences and understanding of math concepts. Administrators can easily provide this support to their entire staff with whole school webinars that run 90 minutes. The focus is on establishing math routines as students transition to school after summer break. There are two types of webinars:  grade-specific for each grade K-5 for individual classroom teachers, and those grouped by grade-ranges of K-2 and 3-5 for whole schools. Webinars are available at multiple times in August, starting on Thurs. Aug. 4 and Fri. Aug. 5 for the West Coast. More opportunities are available on Aug. 8-10, and for the East Coast Aug. 29-Sept. 2.…Read More
