Creating, Collaborating and Computing in Math

Creating, Collaborating and Computing in MathEnhancing the teaching and learning of mathematics using technology

Riverside School Board and McGill University- December 10th, 2014

Group norms and ground rules for participationActivity on EdmodoBrandons thesisVideos-based lesson studyLunchDiscussion on experiences with FADiscourse in the match classroomPlanning for school visits

Agenda ARRIVE ON-TIME AND PREPARED REMAIN ON TASK /TOPIC BE AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THE GROUP WITHOLD ALL JUDGEMENT RESPECT OUR PEERS RESPECT THE STUDENTS: no mention of names (looking at facts not behaviours) REMAIN POSITIVE AND SUPPORTIVEGroup NormsThe CCC-M teachers are encouraged to Visit the CCC-M Group on Edmodo (at least) once a week.Check regularly new postings and the replies.Post relevant messages to keep up-to-date on what is going on in our classrooms.Reply to the others messages in a timely manner. Feel free to communicate openly and interact freely.

Practices of High-Quality Teaching

Who is doing most of the talking in the class?

Is the task rich enough to allow a good level of reasoning and conversation to happen?Open Questions and DiscourseTalk moves (re-voicing and restating): moves:

Talk MovesHow do talk moves encourage students to make connections with each other?

Which talk moves do you use in your classroom? Which could you add? Reflection Can you tell me what just said?Can you repeat what just said?Re-voicing and RepeatingCan you say, in your own words, what just explained?

RestatingDo you agree or disagree?What can you add to what just said?What do you think about what just said?

Apply Your Own Reasoning

Supporting Good Math Talk Moves in the Classroom Videos

Why Math Talk?

Five Major Reasons That Talk Is Critical to Teaching and LearningTalk can reveal understanding and misunderstanding.Talk supports robust learning by boosting memory.Talk supports deeper reasoning.Talk supports language development.Talk supports development of social skills.

Plan Your Math Talk MovesFrom Orchestrating Discussions (Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2009)Anticipating student responses to challenging mathematical tasksMonitoring students work on and engagement with the tasksSelecting particular students to present their mathematical workSequencing the students responses that will be displayed in a specific orderConnecting different students responses and connecting the responses to key mathematical ideasFollowing the 5 Practices ModelComplete the Tool for Monitoring Students ExplorationsSelect Your Task and Anticipate ResponsesPlanning for School VisitsDr. Alain Breuleux: [email protected] Gyeong Mi Heo: [email protected] Nong : [email protected]
