Regardless of grade level, there are four fundamental things educators must do for their students to experience math success.
1. Apply explicit instructional techniques effectively to both direct and inquiry-based instruction
2. Develop student use and understanding of mathematical vocabulary
3. Differentiate instruction easily and appropriately
4. Promote the active use of discourse strategies to deepen mathematical understanding
During this hour-long webinar, CORE’s Director of Mathematics, Dean Ballard, examines all four requirements and share tips and techniques to ensure they are all incorporated into math instruction.
When teachers have a range of evidence-based solutions at their fingertips, and a solid plan to effectively use them, they can better meet the needs of students who struggle with math.
Watch this on-demand webinar to learn best practices and practical advice to support these students from CORE’s Director of Mathematics, Dean Ballard.
Help accelerate math achievement with resources and strategies that ensure students receive instruction and supports appropriate to their individual needs.
Reading is a complex process that involves quickly and accurately recognizing words, understanding the meaning of words, and making sense of their meaning in context. Students identified with reading difficulties most often struggle with word reading.
During this on-demand webinar Dr. David A. Kilpatrick, author of Essentials of Assessing, Preventing, and Overcoming Reading Difficulties, discusses the importance of understanding the nature of word-level reading development and word-level reading problems in order to accurately assess reading difficulties and implement effective interventions.

Since the 2017 Supreme Court ruling on Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District RE-1, many school districts have put a renewed focus on ensuring students with disabilities not only receive a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) but true educational equity.
During the webinar, Dr. Michelle Hosp, Associate Professor of Special Education at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Dr. Arun Ramanathan, CEO of Pivot Learning, examine special education in the post-Endrew environment. These experts share:
Don’t miss this opportunity to gain insights into how other districts are setting high expectations for students with disabilities and supporting their progress toward meaningful goals.
Each school year, many students fall further and further behind in math. Often they don’t have solid number sense nor mastery of important grade level fluencies. Consequently, valuable time must be spent addressing these gaps rather than focusing on new concepts.
It is critical that educators possess the knowledge and skills to ensure that all of their students move to the next grade level with the necessary foundation in numbers and operations, so they can successfully master more challenging concepts.
During this webinar, CORE’s Director of Mathematics, Dean Ballard, discusses the importance of mathematical fluency and number sense in ensuring all students can meet rigorous mathematical standards.
