Six Routines to Support Mathematical ThinkingPosted on 01/15/2015
The Teaching Channel is a new must for anyone in education who cares about self-improvement and "sharing and learning diverse techniques to help every student grow.".
In a December 23, 2014 re-post by contributor Lily Jones, a Northern California educator, outlined some strategies that form the foundation for inspiring math learning. Jones, states that "teachers need to constantly think about differentiation, assessment, transitions, and about four hundred other things. Establishing a solid foundation of routines makes it possible for teachers to do complex teaching. And with the addition of one essential ingredient (JOY!) students are prepared to engage in complex learning."
Routines are accompanied by under-three-minutes video demonstrations and are organized in categories of organization, problem-solving tools and creating a joyful math culture.
