Exemplars Remote Lesson Ideas and Resources

Here at Exemplars, we’re constantly asking the question, “What more can we do for teachers?”

In this unique year, we’re all facing new challenges head-on. So much has changed but the importance of exposing students to rich problem-solving opportunities has not. Because of this, we want to make it easier for teachers to engage students in rich discourse, collaborative problem solving, and the creation of mathematical representations without creating added stress or lesson planning challenges. 

In the "Tools for Success" section of the Exemplars Library, all users now have access to a folder of lesson resources: slide decks, lesson plans, example student responses, and interactive self-assessment tools that you may use in your own in-person or remote lessons

The tutorials below will guide you through the resources so that you can choose the lesson structure that works best for you and your students.
