Mathematical Reasoning Webinar (Sept 2015)

In this webinar, we’ll take a deep dive into the content covered on the 2014 GED®test – Mathematical Reasoning. We’ll take a look at the types of questions that students are missing on the test and examine the skills students need in order to answer these question correctly. We’ll also explore teaching strategies and techniques that you can use in your classroom to help students develop these skills.

It’s not just about Reasoning Through Language Arts! This webinar will focus on the process of teaching argumentative writing – one step at a time. Dig deeper into the different parts of argumentative writing and how to integrate this process in constructed responses for Reasoning Through Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science. This webinar will provide you with strategies, frames, and graphic organizers for teaching argumentative writing – both in extended responses and short answers. Remember, it’s all about assisting our students in becoming more effective writers.
