At the 2018 International T³ Conference in San Antonio, Jennifer Wilson (@jwilson828) and I presented the following 90-minute session.
Leading Learners to Level Up:
Deepening Understanding of Mathematical Practices
We say: Persevere! Express regularity in repeated reasoning! Be precise! Show your work!… But what if I can’t yet? How might we make our thinking visible to empower our young learners to become self-correcting, self-reliant and independent? How do we coach – what strategies do we use – to help learners to embrace the Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice? At the end of this session, participants should be able to say I can provide my learners leveled support on the Standards for Mathematical Practice on their journey towards mathematical proficiency. I can make my thinking visible to motivate learners to ask high quality questions. I can focus on the art of questioning and formative assessment tools to lead learners to level up.
Here’s the plan:
|8:40||Make Sense of Tasks and Persevere Solving Them (SMP 1)
|9:05||Look for & Make Use of Structure (SMP 7)
|9:35||Look for & Express Regularity in Repeated Reasoning (SMP 8)
|9:55||Goal setting: Back with my learners … Next steps|
Here’s my sketch note of the plan for our session.
Dave Johnston (@Johnston_MSMath) recorded his thinking and learning and shared it with us via Twitter.
