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.
