NMW | Applications of Reading Strategies in Mathematics (2 of 2), March 31, 2022

In this workshop, we will present some learning activities that can help students consolidate reading strategies.
By the end of the workshop, you will…
– Be able to recognize different types of text used in complex tasks and their characteristics.
– Be able to use differentiation learning tools to support student challenges in math literacy.
– Have reading strategies to apply in the teaching of complex task.

Presented by: Vanessa Boily and Micheline Ammar
Collaborator: Giovanna Salvagio
