Manitoba’s math students are currently at the bottom of the pack compared to kids in other Canadian provinces. As homeschoolers, how can we buck the trend and graduate students who are able to use math effectively, either at home or on the job? Join us as we consider the answer to that question. We’ll discuss three things that characterize a math student who succeeds. We’ll also look at the four critical components of effective math instruction—components that will not only help you teach math effectively to your kids, but can also guide you in your selection of a suitable math curriculum in the first place.
Teaching a Struggling Learner Forum If you find yourself a parent of a struggling learner, messages such as “a ‘real’ teacher could do better,” or “homeschooling doesn’t work” may distract and discourage you. Or the question of “when to trust the experts?” may weigh heavily on your mind. In this session, hear from others with experience teaching (or being) struggling learners. Come prepared to ask your questions and glean from their life-gathered insights.
