NAAE Convention 2020 Workshop - Do Your Skills Measure Up? Converting Students into Rulers! 


Does the sight of a tape measure or ruler have your students measuring twice and still cutting incorrectly? You’re not alone, we promise. We recognize measurement as a skill where many students lack proficiency. This workshop will highlight a unit of instruction developed to assist teachers to teach basic measurement skills including linear, angles, volume and weight with the goal to develop a strong foundation of measurement skills for students. Lesson plans are developed using a variety of learning techniques to encourage active student engagement and differentiated instructional strategies to meet the needs of all learners. Curricula for the basic measurement unit of instruction will be provided to workshop participants.
