This workshop will provide opportunities to:
- Explore five essential instructional shifts that emphasize mathematical content and practices
- Engage with high cognitive demand tasks and how to support them during instruction
- Enhance your understanding of the shifts through the use of authentic video in classrooms
Participants will explore practices with respect to teacher and student actions, unpack norms supportive of student engagement in mathematical practices, and create a shared image of classrooms where focus is on student engagement in mathematical practices.
In addition to the five instructional shifts, Juli Dixon will reveal six ways we undermine efforts to increase student achievement.
Presenter: Juli Dixon
Juli Dixon is professor of mathematics education at the University of Central Florida (UCF). Dr. Dixon is focused on improving teachers’ mathematics knowledge for teaching so that they support their students to communicate and justify mathematical ideas. She is co-author of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s "Into Math,” “Go Math!” for K-8 mathematics, and “AGA and Integrated Mathematics” for high school. She is also co-author of Solution Tree’s "Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching" book and video series. Especially important to Dr. Dixon is the need to teach each and every student.
