Author and international instructor Peter Liljedahl, PhD.
will be leading this professional learning. Many math classrooms may be guided by institutional norms laid down at the inception of an industrial-age model of public education, but it IS possible to break this cycle. Using his 15 years of research, Liljedahl presents how teachers can transform their classrooms from a space where students mimic, to where students think. The practices discussed will intertwine with, and make extensive references to, the recently published book, "Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics (Grades K-12): 14 Teaching Practices for Enhancing Learning."
