BRIDGES INTERVENTION WORKSHOPS

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 through one meeting on live Zoom, as well as some hours of self-study. Cost: $75 per individual participant.

Webinar Replays

At the Math Learning Center, we believe that all students can make sense of mathematics. Some students just need more time, more opportunities, and more support than others. Our approach emphasizes problem solving, the use of faithful visual models, and a focus on developing fluency. Consequently, we’ve revised Bridges Intervention to reflect those beliefs and build on the strengths of all students and teachers by:
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.
Bridges Breakout: Number Rack helps students learn addition and subtraction math facts using the number rack, a math tool that builds conceptual understanding and fluency through seeing and understanding number relationships. In this webinar, The Math Learning Center’s Nicole Rigelman and Shelly Scheafer walk you through Bridges Breakout: Number Rack with a focus on the underlying pedagogy, classroom use cases, and example lessons from the kit.
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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this training! Not only did I gain a better understanding of the program, but I also created a plan for my new teacher training. I highly recommend this training for all math leaders using Bridges in Mathematics.

Dean of instruction – Houston, TX

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

We enjoyed having you set such a wonderful tone for our group. Thank you for sharing your expertise, bringing laughter to the room, and cultivating confidence for teachers.

Math coordinator – Avon, IN

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!

Lead teacher – Snohomish, WA

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.
