When teachers come together for Zearn Math PD, they explore the mathematical ideas, visual representations, and teaching strategies that deepen student learning, so that every teacher is empowered with more options to support kids where they are and get them where they need to be. For the 2020-21 school year, Zearn PD is available to teachers and administrators whose school has purchased a School Account.
Classroom Implementation PD
This PD option consists of 3 hours of interactive sessions designed to train participants on the Zearn Math rotational classroom model, including routines for Core and Flex Days and strategies for successful independent learning. This PD should be completed at the start of the school year.
Curriculum Study PD
This PD option consists of 8 hours per grade level of interactive sessions designed to build content knowledge on teaching the Zearn Math curriculum. Each Mission is explored in a session that dives into the word problems, fluencies, and Small Group Lessons of the Mission. Participants are prompted to collaboratively analyze the Mission while assessing student work and strategies for problem solving. This PD should be completed in grade-level team meetings over the course of the academic year. Preview Curriculum Study PD for Grade 3 Mission 1.
Both PD options are delivered through Zearn’s innovative digital platform. Platform features include:

- In-depth participant notes to support learning and takeaways
