IM Learning™ Leadership Academies

Who should attend?
Coaches
Math leaders

This academy is designed for those who are new to the curriculum. If you are in your second year of curriculum adoption, contact your
Open Up Resources Math Field Specialist for extended learning options.

Two-Day Introduction to the Curriculum
Working with the IM team at a central location, participants explore the problem-based lesson structure of the curriculum, review all Open Up Resources print and digital instructional materials, and learn to leverage both the 5 Practices framework and instructional routines to foster student discourse. Participants also discover embedded mathematical routines for English learners and prepare to teach Unit 1.

Specialized Training Day for Coaches
Review each grade-level unit and learn strategies for building PLCs around the 5 Practices, math routines, and language routines.

Virtual Unit Coaching
Tailor-made for math coaches, each two-hour session—one for each unit across all grade levels—prepares coaches to deliver unit trainings to teachers.
