Back by Popular Demand: The Virtual Implementation Support Workshop

Due to popular demand, The Math Learning Center is pleased to announce a second one-day virtual Implementation Support Workshop for administrators, coaches, and other instructional leaders. This interactive workshop is designed to provide participants with a clear vision and practical strategies to support the successful implementation of the Bridges curriculum. Participants will develop a vision for high-quality mathematics instruction. They’ll consider how to use classroom observation to support instructional shifts. And they’ll explore the structure and intent of the implementation guide by engaging with it firsthand to plan the components of a productive grade-level meeting.

Sign up early, as participation is limited and we expect this event to fill up quickly!

Date: Thursday, December 9th, 2021

Time:  7:30 AM – 1:15 PM Pacific Time.  (A 45-minute break will be provided.) 

Cost: $75 per individual 

Webinar Replays

An hour long introduction to the approach, structure and components of the Bridges in Mathematics program, a clearly articulated PK–5 curriculum offering a unique blend of problem solving and skill building.
In this 60-minute webinar, Math Learning Center curriculum consultants led a guided exploration of the Bridges Intervention Resources created for the 2020–2021 school year. Participants experienced a Volume 2 Intervention Session that uses apps, Google Docs, and Work Places.
During this 45-minute webinar, Math Learning Center Curriculum Consultants led a guided exploration of the Bridges Intervention Resources created for the 2020-21 school year. Participants experienced a Volume 5 Intervention Session and will have the opportunity to utilize apps, Google Docs, and Work Places as outlined in the 2020-21 resources.
An introduction to Bridges Intervention, an elementary intervention program using visual models to promote student thinking and accelerate learning. Targeted instruction and assessment for essential K–5 mathematics skills within a tiered system of support are core to Bridges Intervention.
In this 90-minute webinar, our curriculum consultants introduced the Tech-Enhanced Activities, Math at Home resources, and Digital Work Places and went over how they are meant to be used in conjunction with the guidance documents.
The Getting (Re)Started series of three webinars was designed to support teachers as they transition from remote to in-person learning. Our curriculum consultants LaKeshia Cooper and Jennifer Christensen led an engaging review and discussion of the instructional practices that create the Bridges classroom experience. Each 45-minute webinar focuses on one of the three core components of the Bridges curriculum: Problems & Investigations, Work Places, and Number Corner.
Tech-Enhanced Activities, are available on the Seesaw platform for grades K–2 and are linked from the Bridges Educator Site (login required). The webinar provided an overview of the resources, previewed a sample activity, and answered questions about using TEAs for synchronous, asynchronous, and blended learning environments.
In these 60-minute webinars, our curriculum consultants unpack the mathematics in Unit 2, introduced corresponding Tech-Enhanced Activities and other resources, and highlight ways they can be used in conjunction with the guidance documents.
In these 60-minute webinars, our curriculum consultants introduce Unit 3 and the corresponding Tech-Enhanced Activities, Math at Home resources, and Digital Work Places and go over how they are meant to be used in conjunction with the guidance documents.
In these 60-minute webinars, our curriculum consultants continued exploring the mathematics in Unit 3, highlighting multiple strategies for implementing Bridges in synchronous and asynchronous environments.
In these 60-minute webinars, Math Learning Center curriculum consultants explored the mathematics in Unit 4, highlighting multiple strategies for implementing Bridges in synchronous and asynchronous environments.
Teachers, students, and families are increasingly turning to The Math Learning Center apps to support understanding of visual mathematics in remote, hybrid, and socially distant learning environments. This 35-minute webinar explores the apps, as well as strategies to engage students.

Open Workshops

Educators using our programs are invited to register for any applicable workshops listed below. Fees are paid per person. Space is limited.

Bridges Intervention Workshop (Remote)

The Bridges Intervention Workshop is intended for interventionists. Classroom teachers, support staff, coaches, and administrators may attend as space allows. This one-day workshop offers guidance for an effective implementation of Bridges Intervention. We'll discuss best practices, placement assessments, progress monitoring, and more.

Before you enroll in this online workshop, it’s important to understand that the workshop will not provide guidance on how to use Bridges Intervention for remote learning.

This workshop stretched the thinking of our team and deepened our understanding of the models and strategies taught in Bridges. We came away prepared to provide ongoing professional development for our current teachers, and train new hires for successfully teaching with Bridges curriculum.

I enjoyed and learned something from each presenter. I left feeling enthusiastic and excited as we head into our second year of using Bridges. It’s great to hear what people in other districts are doing and to learn from it.

Institute attendee – July 2015 session

I enjoyed connecting with other math coaches from other parts of the country and hearing about their schools. The readings were helpful because I could directly apply them to the work I have been doing.

Course attendee – fall 2015 session

What a fabulous workshop! I came away feeling so much more confident in the curriculum and ready to share what I learned with colleagues who will be new to Bridges this next year!
