Join us in Visible Learning for Mathematics to learn how to use high impact practices in math classes that ensure students demonstate academic growth. Based on Dr. John Hattie's synthesis of more than 15 years of research involving millions of students, these practices make learning visible for teachers and students to see.
You will learn in this interactive workshop ways to design learning experiences in the math classroom for your students that have a clear purpose, use the right approach to hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning, and support students becoming more self confident learners able to track their own progress. Hattie's research shows us which instructional routines have the most impact on learning, and we'll explore the most effective ones and how to use them in classrooms.
Choosing the right strategy at the right time in the learning process is a difficult task. During our time together, we will:
- Look at the framework for building high-impact instruction based on the research of John Hattie.
- Understand how to choose strategies to help students progress from surface into deep learning, and then transfer it into complex mathematical tasks.
- Build lessons focused on learning intentions and success criteria.
- Learn how to explicitly engage students in the learning process.
This course will be presented using Zoom. A Zoom link will be sent via email prior to August 3rd. Please look for this email at the address listed in your Region 13 account.
A copy of Visible Learning for Mathematics by John Hattie, Douglas Fisher, and Nancy Frey is needed for this course. Please be sure to have a copy available. Check your school library or buy online.
