FOCUS ON STUDENT THINKING: ENGAGE & REFLECT (FOSTER)
The Focus On Student Thinking: Engage & Reflect (FOSTER) program continues on for it's second year! This is a virtual Zoom series for K-12 mathematics teachers where we can focus on student thinking and reflect on what learning is like for students.
As we reflect, we will also deepen your understanding of mathematics and engage with peers to unpack the teaching of mathematics. Between each session we will share opportunities for you to stay connected with fellow teachers on "tasks to try" before the next session. All activities will be led by Deb Stetson and Sayonita Ghosh Hajra.
Here are the topics we will be covering at each session:
Experience inclusion activities & build community
Problem solving, engaging in discourse, and question-posing
Open exploration and identify questions to extend thinking
Explore different technology & tools
Teaser for February 22
"It’s Not Just Blowing In the Wind"
Get fired up for a game! It has something to do with wildflowers and seed distribution. As we explore strategies you will have some freedom to consider how the game might be tweaked and explore what effect changes to the rules could have. We’ll start out with a competition between individuals and then team you up with your competitor to play against another duo.
