Collaborative Classrooms in Action

Teachers report challenges in implementing the strategies that make students college and career ready in the 21st century.

  • How do you keep students engaged on interesting math problems?

  • How do you make sure students are discussing rich, mathematical concepts and ideas?

  • How do you shift the teaching focus from covering topics to deepening studentsí understanding of the mathematics in each course?

In this workshop, teachers will experience the excitement of engaging mathematical lessons while discussing the mathematics with colleagues. Participants will learn how to adjust lessons to promote mathematical discourse while also experiencing strategies they can use to facilitate discussions as students grapple with engaging problems. This seminar is appropriate for grades 6-12 teachers.
