Teaching Today: Pedagogy, Perspective, and Practice is the theme for the 2016-2017 NHASCD Conference series. These events will be held from 8:30am to 3:00pm at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord, NH.
Registration for each conference includes free parking; hand-out materials and resources; breakfast & a full buffet lunch; opportunities to discuss the presenter's ideas and strategies for improving curriculum, instruction, assessment, and leadership; time for learning more about exhibitors' programs, products, and services; and the chance to win a variety of raffle prizes.
On May 19th, 1917, NHASCD welcomes STEVEN LEINWAND whose interactive presentation will be on "Sensible, Accessible Instructional Strategies for Increasing MATH Engagement." His fast-paced, energetic presentation at this NHASCD Spring Conference will be full of real-world examples. Throughout the day he will also describe and model key strategies and characteristics of high quality mathematics instruction -- and share explicit ideas on how to bring these instructional shifts to scale.
For 22 years Steven Leinwand was the Mathematics Supervisor in the Connecticut Department of Education; he also served on the NCTM Board of Directors and is a former President of the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics. He currently serves as the mathematics expert on a wide range of projects for the American Institutes for Research (AIR) in Washington, D.C. Along with consulting with schools and districts across the country, he is involved with math assessment development for organizations such as Smarter Balanced.
Steven Leinwand is fiercely devoted to providing the best possible mathematics instruction for all students. He also believes that math assessments must regularly include interesting problems, extended tasks, explanations of reasoning, and justifications for actions and solutions. When these are in place, instructional reform is encouraged and students are learning important, useful mathematics.
Leinwand has worked with the Microsoft Math Partnership in eight Puget Sound school districts, the General Electric Foundation’s Ensuring Futures program in six urban districts, and most recently in various School Improvement Grant “turn-around” schools all over this country. He is the author of mathematics textbooks and books such as Accessible Mathematics: 10 Instructional Shifts That Raise Student Achievement and Sensible Mathematics: A Guide for School Leaders. In 2015, Steve was honored to receive NCSM's Taylor-Gilbert National Mathematics Education Leadership Award.
