*This institute is also listed in the categories Conferring, Problem Solving, & Writing in Math.

Because teachers play a vital role in the development of students’ problem solving capacity, habits of mind, and writing, teachers need to develop an understanding of how to select and present rich problems, what constitutes a clear and precise mathematical argument, how writing in mathematics is different from writing in other content areas, and how to confer with individual students to maximize student learning in the shortest amount of time. This institute provides hands-on experiences for teachers to explore problem solving strategies, tools to help them learn to confer effectively with individual students, and how to develop student capacity to write well in the mathematics class.

In this two-day institute, teachers will explore the following questions

  • What constitutes a rich task?
  • How do you use a rich task to develop students’ mathematical writing?
  • How do you use one-on-one or small group conferring to improve students’ thinking and writing?
  • What are high-leverage conferring moves and how do you know which moves to use on what occasions?
  • How do I assess my strengths in conferring and how do I improve my conferring practice?

Rich tasks, student writing, and video examples and transcripts will be used in the institute to help teachers improve their understanding of problem solving, mathematical writing, and the art of conferring.
