6b. Making Meaning & Promoting Access in Quantway: Introduction to New Contextualized Lessons and Literacy Tools
Saturday, July 16 | 1:15pm – 3:00pm
In this hands-on workshop, participants will have the opportunity to become more familiar with the twelve new Quantway lessons contextualized for healthcare, information technology, and environment science. The session offers insight about how the lessons were developed, how they differ from other Quantway lessons, and how to use them. In the development of these lessons, 3 literacy tools were incorporated to promote access to mathematics context for students who struggle with reading and writing. These tools are: Annotation, Double Entry Journal, and Comprehension and Synthesis (CaS) Chart. After being introduced to each tool, faculty members will work in differentiated small groups to analyze and adapt literacy tools to meet the needs of their students. Faculty are encouraged to bring their laptops and any lessons to focus and do some lesson planning for the coming school year. Participants will break into small groups based on the curriculum they teach, interest in using Contextualized Lessons (for QW), and experience with the Pathways Program. Though the lessons introduced are Quantway, Statway Faculty are also welcomed to learn about the literacy tools and how they might incorporate them into their curriculum!
