Attending this event?

Welcome to the 2019 CPM National Teacher Conference!

We are hosting this conference as an investment in the most important educational resource that America has—the classroom teacher. We are honored that you chose to join us. It is our hope that what you will see, hear, do, and learn at this conference will leave you motivated and inspired to continue the pursuit of mathematics with your students and colleagues.

We extend a thank you to those who were willing to present their ideas and strategies with their colleagues. We hope that you enjoy your time in the beautiful San Francisco area and leave energized to continue empowering your students. We hope to see you next year!

How to Use SCHED to Maximize Your Conference Experience

  • Use your My Sched to plan your conference experience. Add sessions to your My Sched by clicking on the white circle next to the title of the session.  Add as many sessions as you want in each time period. However, adding a session to your My Sched does not guarantee a seat in the room.
  • Check SCHED for up to the minute information, sessions changes and cancelations. 

Continuing Education Credit for Attending the Conference

You may earn one continuing education unit (not academic credit) through Fresno Pacific University for attending the conference. In order to be eligible for this credit you must:

  • Register and pay $75 through Fresno Pacific University

  • Sign-in each morning: Solano Room in the Embassy Suites or the Reflection Foyer at the Hilton.

  • Attend a session during each of the time periods,  including the Keynote (Saturday morning) and the Ignite Session (Sunday afternoon). 

  • Submit Session Feedback Forms for all of the sessions that you attend.

  • Submit a Conference Feedback Form at the end of the Ignite session.

Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI) & CPM Collaboratively

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Would you like to see your students engaging in a balanced approach of Mathematics? Imagine strengthening their conceptual and computational fluency simultaneously. Cognitively Guided Mathematics (CGI) starts with what children already know about math and build on it to move them toward deeper levels of understanding. Children will solve the problems in ways that make sense to them. During problem solving, multiple student strategies are shared and featured. CGI in CPM reinforces students' capacities to problem solve by giving them the opportunities to think in creative ways and actively form strategies using what they know, instead of passively receiving information. In CGI, the teacher's role dramatically shifts from teacher to facilitator. Engaging in CPM through elements of CGI can create the same shift.
Teachers will experience how to incorporate CGI in CPM. We will look at different components of a CGI model such as balanced mathematics for fluency, honoring student strategies, number choice in problems, anticipate student strategies, and some number talks to strengthen conceptual understanding. During our time together, participants will actively engage in all of these models through problem-solving using the CPM curriculum. It's our hope that teachers walk away with routines and structures that they can begin implementing in their CPM classroom.
