NUMERACY FOR ALL:
A COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE FOR TEACHERS OF STUDENTS WITH SIGNIFICANT COGNITIVE DISABILITIES
The Central Alberta Regional Consortia (through the Alberta Regional Consortia), in collaboration with Alberta Education hosted yearlong communities of practice for teachers from grades 1 to 12 to enhance teacher capacity to meet the mathematics instruction and numeracy needs of students with significant cognitive disabilities. Each year, participants met face-to-face twice during the year and collaborated in an online environment from September to June.
The purpose of this web site is to provide information and strategies for teachers in Alberta who want to learn more about mathematics instruction and numeracy development for students with significant cognitive disabilities. Much of this content has been co-developed with participants of the Numeracy for All communities of practice based on the work with their students.

“A community of practice is a group of people who share a common concern for something they do
and a commitment to learn how to do it better by interacting and collaborating regularly.”
