Launching Math Workshop
This week our elementary teachers launched math workshop in every classroom. Math workshop follows a similar structure to the well known readers and writers workshop, whereby students receive mini-lessons, spend the majority of their time doing active exploration, and have opportunities to reflect and share their learning. The workshop approach is based on decades of research that shows students learn best when they are actively constructing their own knowledge, rather then being passive recipients of information. During math workshop teachers build a community of mathematicians and facilitate deep learning through strategic inquiry, rich conversations and reflection. We look forward to sharing more about our approach to teaching and learning mathematics throughout the year.
The following articles are a great read for anyone who is interested in learning more about math education.
