Making Math Count in WHPS
Fundamentals of Great Teaching in Math
Shouldn't the written curriculum tell us what to teach?
With the addition of Math In Practice, our curriculum provides a core resource that is well researched and provides guidance for structuring lessons in a sequence that develops students' understanding of mathematical concepts. Additionally, other resources are listed in the written curriculum so teachers have a bank of possible activities available to support all math learning goals for our diverse student populations.
Focus on the Mathematics Goal
Learning targets, written as "I can" statements, help ensure that all students know what the purpose of the lesson will be. Learning targets let students know what they should be able to do by the end of the lesson and as a result of the lesson. It is not enough to tell students what they will be doing in a lesson. Teachers must also communicate to students what they are expected to learn and know as a result of the lesson and how this learning connects to previous and future learning.
