The new edition of Children's Mathematics explores the philosophy of Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI) for helping children develop deep mathematical understanding. In today's post, which is the first in a series of video conversations, teacher Stacey Dominguez shares her reflections on using CGI in her classroom.
In this clip, Stacey discusses:
- her impressions and learnings in her first years using Cognitively Guided Instruction
- some early challenges with using Cognitively Guided Instruction and how she addressed them
- learning to ask questions that promote deep mathematical thinking in students.
