Professional Learning at Nesika on Numeracy
Carole Fullerton joins SD27 teachers at Nesika, on addressing diversity in the classroom by teaching through problem-solving. Take aways: All students in an inclusive math classroom are getting into a task together and then the teacher’s role is to facilitate by adjusting the challenge level through knowing kids, moving between them, and knowing the math deeply. Students show their thinking visibly, and ‘good questions’ keep the learning going deeper. Meaningful practice consolidates learning.
“And it all starts with a good question.”
