Wednesday, February 3, 2021 from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM

In this workshop, we will explore the big ideas of geometric thinking as outlined in the van Heile levels of geometric thought.  This framework is developmental in nature and not grade or age specific. Therefore, special education teachers at all grade levels will find this learning to be applicable in their setting and provide them a lens by which to examine students’ thinking about geometry.  They will be able to use the levels to determine present level of performance, consider annual goals, and sequence instruction.  Additionally, participants will explore concepts using concrete, virtual, semi-concrete, and abstract representations.  Throughout the day, misconceptions, instructional strategies, and technology will be addressed.
