Explicit Teaching in Problem-based Mathematics
Explicit Teaching in Problem-based Mathematics offers a re-imagining of what it means to engage in “direct” instruction. Rather than a separate pedagogical approach, explicit instruction is an integral part of problem-based learning and instruction. Animation and video are used to feature educator moves that support students to “notice things they would not otherwise see.” Think uncovering. Think making visible.
Innovative Networks offers an inside look into the knowledge building practices of a Grade 6 classroom teacher, with a focus on math learning. She discusses her practices with two professors with expertise in knowledge building and learning networks. Students talk about how they build ideas as a community and the impact of knowledge building on their personal and collective agency. It will be relevant to educators interested in creating knowledge building cultures and applying research to practice.
Passion for Teaching and Learning
Passion for Teaching and Learning offers an inside look into primary, junior and intermediate classrooms during math learning activities. Teachers, students and administrators talk about and demonstrate how learners can use a variety of student-developed strategies to discover math concepts, constants and rules. It will be relevant to educators interested in eliminating math anxiety by connecting math understanding to real-life learning experiences.
