Much of how classrooms look and much of what happens in them today is guided by institutional norms laid down at the inception of an industrial-age model of public education. These norms have enabled a culture of teaching and learning that is often devoid of student thinking. In this session, Dr. Liljedahl presents some of the results of over 15 years of research into how teachers can transform their classrooms from a space where students mimic to where students think. The practices discussed will intertwine with, and make extensive references to, the best-selling book, Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics (Grades K-12): 14 Teaching Practices for Enhancing Learning.
Join Dr. Peter Liljedahl as he shares the strategies in this instructional approach that has taken the math world by storm. This methodology is a way of teaching that gets students up on their feet, collaborating, and thinking through problems on a daily basis. Although its genesis was for the math classroom, it can work in any content area.
