PMI@Berks Day 1 (6/26/17)

We are off to a great start for PMI at Berks.  We have 22 participants from 7 districts, with every grade level from Kindergarten to 6th represented.

This evening’s homework is as follows:

  • Read Principles to Actions pages 1-11 and pages 17-24.
    • Reflect on a task you have assigned your class, and analyze it from the perspective of what level of cognitive demand it makes.
  • Choose 3 categories from the “Spectrum of Subtraction” in Block 2, Page 9.  For each one, write a word problem appropriate for your grade level.  We will share these on Tuesday.
  • Complete both “Addition and Subtraction Problems” on Block 2, Page 10.

We’re excited that our first summer workshops will be starting Monday 6/26!  Twenty Pennsylvania teachers will be coming to Penn State Berks for Math as a Second Language.
