Even before the pandemic, the call for a new vision of math instruction was loud. Yet, it is a challenge in our profession to consistently access opportunities to think critically and collaboratively about pedagogy, and avoid "teaching how we were taught", especially in mathematics.
In Math in Practice: A Guide for Teachers, author Sue O'Connell writes, "Most of us learned math in classrooms characterized as teaching by telling. We now realize that method sacrificed understanding for efficiency. We also recognize that our students deserve more than that."
If you are looking for guidance on how to transform your math instruction, or place a stronger focus on meaning-making, student talk, and interactive tasks, we have professional learning options for you!
Do The Math "Getting Started" PD develops teachers' understanding of the Do The Math program and how it builds students' numerical reasoning.
