Event title: Engaging students with Learning difficulties and/or Maths Anxiety

Event date: Wednesday 19th August

Registrations close: Monday 17th August

Time: 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Target Audience: Teachers of Years 7 – 12

Session Abstract: 

Do you have students that don’t like Maths? Are they refusing, avoiding or just not doing the work? Low confidence or maths anxiety? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, it is highly likely you are teaching students with learning difficulties.

This practical session will look at starting, planning and structuring lessons to engage students with a variety of learning difficulties (social and intellectual) in Mathematics; including students who are completely reluctant, anxious or disengaged. Learn practical ways of supporting these students so they can experience success in Mathematics and gain the numeracy skills they need in life.

Ruth Hibburt will reveal her secrets to success for improving outcomes working with students who have learning difficulties in the Middle Years Literacy and Numeracy Support (MYLNS) program.

She will share her strategies for building confidence and self-belief in students through an interactive virtual presentation. All participants will leave with a summary guide and access to ‘how to’ videos for the activities.
