ES Teacher—Kirsten Keenan
Learn how mathematical practices can excite students to think like mathematicians and dramatically improve reasoning skills. Participants will understand how to embed the practices into every lesson and create students who think at a deeper level. Participants will use math bookmarks to drive academic discussion rich with mathematical language and learn how to improve number talks with a focus on Mathematical Practice #3. They will learn how to structure writing in math to develop the mathematical practices and receive examples of templates to use with both primary and intermediate grades. Participants will leave with hands-on materials they can use directly in the classroom.
