The Effectiveness of Instructional Routines

routines-for-reasoning_mg5d1631

Imagine having a set of routines focused not on classroom management, but on helping students develop their mathematical thinking skills. Routines for Reasoning provides expert guidance for harnessing the power of classroom-tested instructional routines to support every learner in developing mathematical thinking and problem solving skills.


In today's clip, Grace Kelemanik and Amy Lucenta, two of the Routines for Reasoning coauthors, talk about how instructional routines can be a support for both teachers and learners in the classroom. You'll hear them discuss:

  • how routines can simplify and unclutter mathematical thinking for students
  • how instructional routines let teachers focus more on student thinking and learning
  • the way instructional routines support English learners and students with learning disabilities
