Taking Action: Implementing Effective Mathematics Teaching Practices

Instructor: Sharon Rendon

CPM Mathematics Director of Professional Learning, NCSM Regional Director

Effective teaching matters for student learning of mathematics. Through this workshop, gain a richer understanding of the high-leverage,
research-informed teaching practices identified in NCTMís Principles to Actions.

What is the role of facilitating student discourse ? In what ways can teachers support productive struggle so students take ownership of their learning? How do the eight teaching practices form a framework to guide the daily work of teaching mathematics? The session will engage you with classroom strategies and resources to experience and implement effective mathematics teaching practices.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own device to learn how to model 5 of the mathematical teaching practices using a Desmos activity.
Activities will be applicable for grades 4-12.
