What is Learnership?

Learnership combines the words and meanings of the words “learner” and “ownership.” Together, they embody the elevation of learning to learner ownership. Someone who has true learnership is one who self-directs, self-evaluates, self-reflects, and self-controls their own learning.

Why Teach the Mathematical Practices?

In this article, you will learn...

  • Teaching kids the skill of mathematical metacognition is the key to achieving conceptual understanding and procedural fluency.
  • Metacognition requires students to examine, externalize, and apply their thinking and is related to the concept of student ownership—a mindset that leads to elevated academic achievement.
  • 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.
  • For the next eight weeks Elevated Achievement will be providing you with a metacognitive study of the 8 mathematical practices—what this thinking looks like at each grade level, a step-by-step approach to teaching each practice, and a reflection guide to support students as they “think about their thinking.”
