Getting (Re)Started

Given the past year’s unique circumstances, we know many teachers are thinking about how Bridges will look and sound once when they return to in-person learning. The Getting (Re)Started series of three webinars is designed to support teachers as they transition from remote to in-person learning. Our curriculum consultants LaKeshia Cooper and Jennifer Christensen will lead an engaging review and discussion of the instructional practices that create the Bridges classroom experience. Each 45-minute webinar will focus on one of the three core components of the Bridges curriculum: Problems & Investigations, Work Places, and Number Corner.

Webinar Replays

An hour long introduction to the approach, structure and components of the Bridges in Mathematics program, a clearly articulated PK–5 curriculum offering a unique blend of problem solving and skill building.

In this 60-minute webinar, Math Learning Center curriculum consultants led a guided exploration of the Bridges Intervention Resources created for the 2020–2021 school year. Participants experienced a Volume 2 Intervention Session that uses apps, Google Docs, and Work Places.

During this 45-minute webinar, Math Learning Center Curriculum Consultants led a guided exploration of the Bridges Intervention Resources created for the 2020-21 school year. Participants experienced a Volume 5 Intervention Session and will have the opportunity to utilize apps, Google Docs, and Work Places as outlined in the 2020-21 resources.

An introduction to Bridges Intervention, an elementary intervention program using visual models to promote student thinking and accelerate learning.

In this 90-minute webinar, our curriculum consultants introduced the Tech-Enhanced Activities, Math at Home resources, and Digital Work Places and went over how they are meant to be used in conjunction with the guidance documents.

Tech-Enhanced Activities, are available on the Seesaw platform for grades K–2 and are linked from the Bridges Educator Site (login required). The webinar provided an overview of the resources, previewed a sample activity, and answered questions about using TEAs for synchronous, asynchronous, and blended learning environments.

In these 60-minute webinars, our curriculum consultants continued exploring the mathematics in Unit 3, highlighting multiple strategies for implementing Bridges in synchronous and asynchronous environments.

In these 60-minute webinars, Math Learning Center curriculum consultants explored the mathematics in Unit 4, highlighting multiple strategies for implementing Bridges in synchronous and asynchronous environments.

Educators using our programs are invited to register for any applicable workshops listed below. Fees are paid per person. Space is limited.

Bridges Intervention Workshop (Remote)

The Bridges Intervention Workshop is intended for interventionists. Classroom teachers, support staff, coaches, and administrators may attend as space allows. This one-day workshop offers guidance for an effective implementation of Bridges Intervention. We'll discuss best practices, placement assessments, progress monitoring, and more.

Virtual Summer Leadership Institute

July 7–9, 2021

The 2021 Virtual Summer Leadership Institute (VSLI) will offer coaches, administrators, curriculum specialists, and teacher-leaders the tools for initiating and sustaining a successful implementation of Bridges in Mathematics. Powerful keynotes, tips from educators who have successfully implemented, and opportunities to network with other Bridges educators are just some of what you’ll find at the VSLI.
