Math Discourse for Elementary Class

The Southern Indiana Education Center welcomes Mandy Morris from INcompassing Learning to the region to guide teachers with this very important topic for elementary math success. Building the foundation of deep mathematical understanding will help students be successful as they continue to grow and learn in mathematics. Learning how to encourage students to construct their own mathematical understanding through meaningful discourse is the key to helping students "think through" math challenges, communicate that thinking, and rise to higher levels of critical thinking. Participants will also learn strategies to meet a variety of learner needs (think ELLs, special education, high ability as a start), support students as they develop higher order thinking skills, and lastly use student feedback to guide instruction.
