Partnership Institute for Math and Science Education Reform (PIMSER)
“Toolkit for Improving Your Instructional Practice”
June 30, Lexington
The Instructional Practice Toolkit is designed for use by coaches and instructional leaders to help Kentucky teachers, and those who support teachers, build understanding and experience with College and Career Readiness (CCR) standards-aligned instruction.

Designed for K-12 teachers, this session will help you learn how to recognize and support effective teaching and learning practices that reflect the specific shifts of CCR standards and develop shared, complementary expertise across districts, schools and classrooms. Develop a common language and set of expectations for identifying shifts-aligned instruction, planning and analysis of student work.

“Student Success in Algebra”
July 13-14, Lexington
Get research-proven strategies, activities and assessment ideas that make a difference in student learning and performance in the middle and high school Algebra I and II classrooms. See what an effective algebra classroom should look like and learn how to engage and motivate students to persevere through challenging content, strengthen the quality of your instruction to improve student learning, and address multiple representations within the mathematical content being taught to build conceptual knowledge and develop math proficiency.
