After-school whole staff workshop (2 or 3 hours)

Is teaching maths really that different to teaching any other subject? We believe it is. So, what makes a high-quality maths lesson?

Course Description

In this course, Anita will focus on the three pillars of high-quality maths lessons K-6: tasks, tools and talk. She will explain her easy-to-implement 5-part lesson structure which incorporates these three pillars. Participants will experience hands-on tasks as ‘students’ while Anita demonstrates practical classroom strategies to support their implementation as the ‘teacher’, including how teachers can incorporate differentiation and make judgments about their students’ understanding along the way.

If you choose the 3-hour course, there will be more time for delving deeper into syllabus content and engaging in further classroom-ready tasks.
