In this series of blog posts, we highlight educators in the field who are using remote learning resources intentionally to build classroom community, collaboration, and student sense-making.

This year, Bridges educators are adapting instruction to unique situations and varied circumstances. While some Bridges educators are teaching in person (with safety protocols in place) or 100% remotely, many are teaching in mixed, hybrid situations. In these settings, some students attend class in person while others join in “live” using Zoom or Google Meet. In

This week, registration opened for MLC’s January grade-level support webinars. As with past webinars in this series, our curriculum consultants and teachers in residence will explore resources and offer guidance for how they may be used to support students in synchronous and asynchronous settings. January’s webinars will focus on unpacking the mathematics in the upcoming unit, examining questioning strategies, and using share codes to design and scaffold learning activities. The grade-level support webinars will devote 50 minutes to the upcoming unit and 10 minutes to addressing

Bridges educators strive to develop safe learning environments that foster inclusivity and collaboration. This environment creates a space for students to develop a sense of belonging and engage in learning with their teacher and peers. But in a remote environment—especially one with limited synchronous time—how do educators develop a sense of classroom community

Embedded below are the replays for the Unit 3 (Part B) grade-level webinars, which continued exploring the unit content, corresponding Tech-Enhanced Activities,  Math at Home   resources and Digital Work Places. 

As with the Unit 2 webinar  and Unit 3 (Part A) replays we’re including the replays for each grade level below on a single page to facilitate sharing with your peers.  

Since we cover resources created to support Bridges educators during the 2020–21 school year, you may find the definitions and links on this reference document  helpful.

K–5 Bridges Intervention Remote Workshop
Mike Wallus, Director of Educator Support

On Friday, November 13, The Math Learning Center will be offering an open enrollment remote Bridges Intervention workshop. This one-day workshop offers guidance for an effective implementation of Bridges Intervention. 

Participants will discuss best practices, placement assessments, progress monitoring, and more. The workshop will begin at 7:30 am Pacific Time and is intended primarily for interventionists, although classroom teachers, paraprofessionals, and administrators are welcome to attend as space allows.  Registration information
