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

Appropriate phase of learning journey with Anita:      START   |    MIDDLE   |   END

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 assist your staff to develop a shared understanding of the principles behind an effective maths lesson. She 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 discussion and delving deeper into syllabus content. In addition, Anita will assist your staff to develop a consistent whole-school approach to high-quality teaching and learning of mathematics.
