Peter Liljedahl stepped into classrooms over the course of 15 years and collaborated with 400+ K-12 teachers focused on one of the slipperiest questions in education; “What works?” By systematically challenging educational norms, he was able to define 14 practices found in every mathematics classroom and identify the optimal practice for getting students to think. As he states, “The goal of thinking classrooms is to build engaged students that are willing to think about any task.” In this class, we will use Liljedahl’s book Building Thinking Classrooms, to explore these best practices and how to systematically and easily begin implementing these practices into classrooms to build a classroom where students engage and learn how to think.
This course is a blend of in person and virtual learning.
