Instructor: Kristi Graves
Method: Face to Face (WRK)
Sponsor: AU Main Campus
Center Offered: APD

Course Description:

Teachers often find it difficult to implement lessons that help students go beyond rote memorization and repetitive calculations. In fact, institutional norms and habits that permeate all classrooms can actually be enabling “non-thinking” student behavior. Sparked by observing teachers struggle to implement rich mathematics tasks to engage students in deep thinking. Peter Liljedahl (the author) has translated his 15 years of research into this practical guide on how to move toward a thinking classroom. Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics, Grades k-12 helps teachers implement 14 optimal practices for thinking that create an ideal setting for deep mathematics learning to occur.
