Workshop Overview

This workshop will focus on current best practices and research in effective teaching strategies. Participants will learn together to deepen understanding of learning and assessment with TI technology as a tool. We will discuss approaches for making thinking visible, incorporating questioning strategies such as anticipating, pacing, monitoring and sequencing.

Participants will:

  • Explore tasks that allow students to engage in teaching strategies that support the Eight Mathematical Teaching Practices as outlined by NCTM’s Principles to Actions.
  • Investigate different teaching strategies and TI technology tools to better incorporate the Mathematical Teaching Practices in their classrooms.

Day 1 Participants will engage in activities to:

  • Identify teaching strategies that support the Mathematics Teaching Practices
  • Emphasize NCTM’s Five Practices for Orchestrating Productive Math Discussions
  • Purposefully consider how they would integrate tasks into their own classroom by looking at the variety of planning and instructional decisions needed before, during and after the lesson

By the end of this workshop, educators should be able to say, I can …

  • Analyze how visual and open tasks contribute to implementing effective teaching practices in mathematics
  • Identify teaching strategies that deepen my understanding of effective teaching practices for mathematics
  • Use students’ responses to advance the understanding of the class as a whole
