Making Problem Solving Comprehensible Through Tape Diagrams, Student Discourse and Connections to English Proficiency StandardsDo your students struggle with solving story problems? In this workshop you will learn strategies to make abstract ideas more concrete and understandable through Model Drawing’s step by step approach of tape diagrams. This approach gives students explicit procedures to organize their ideas and provide visual models for deeper understanding.
Developing Big Ideas for K-2nd Grade Students through Washington Learning Standards and English Language Proficiency Standards

During this two day workshop participants will explore the following topics:
Study of Patterns and Their Relationships:
Seeing Mathematical Situations and Structures:
Describing Change Over Time:
Developing Algebraic Understanding Through Language
