The Mathematical Practices Are the Metacognition Our Kids Need

2020-08-26T00:52:55+00:00

In this article, you will learn:

  • Metacognition in the math classroom is essential for increasing student achievement in mathematics.
  • Fostering metacognition requires a balance of explicit instruction, teacher modeling, student-centered exploration, and responsive coaching that helps students first learn the kinds of questions and thought processes they can apply, and then grow to use them on their own.
  • Mathematics instruction must simultaneously develop conceptual understanding, computational fluency, and problem-solving skills and teaching the Standards for Mathematical Practice can support this development.

How Teachers Can Prioritize Their Many, Many Decisions

2020-08-17T23:28:49+00:00

In this article, you will learn...

  • The key role of the teacher is to design and deliver effective and efficient lessons for all students based on the best practices regarding curriculum, instruction, assessment, and the climate and culture of the classroom, be it a physical, a virtual, or a blended learning environment.
  • For every lesson, the teacher must prioritize and make these decisions–What will my students learn? How will my students learn it? How will my students show that they have learned it? How will my students take an active role in their learning?
  • Each decision will impact other decisions and it is the teacher’s job to decide how these four areas work together to ensure that there is the highest likelihood of a student learning.
