About the course
The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity for early career teachers in their first five years of teaching.
One of the greatest challenges to understanding difficult concepts is understanding the vocabulary that explains those concepts. Integrating numeracy effectively requires students to build the necessary vocabulary to explain their ideas and explore new thinking. This session will explore ways to build vocabulary and identify the important parts of the numeracy curriculum to focus on with students.
