In This Course, Participants…
- explore ways to create a classroom community that supports math learning, encourages productive struggle, and frames mistakes as important learning opportunities
- consider ways to ensure that students are regularly sharing, comparing, and making connections to others’ ideas
- focus on enacting the CCSS Mathematical Practices to ensure that students become mathematically proficient
- engage in mathematics
- analyze classroom videos, readings, and interactive demonstrations
- analyze questions and instructional moves that are productive and extend, deepen, and invite math reasoning
- examine ways to make students’ thinking and learning visible, and to use assessment to guide instruction and learning
Through this course I have learned how important it is to understand what I am seeing and hearing—in terms of my students’ understandings and misunderstandings about the math at hand.
