Celebrating Misconceptions as Learning Opportunities
Do you feel like your students struggle to apply their math skills to more complex problems?
Given the rote procedure that many associate with math, students can often miss connections between higher-level concepts. It’s important for teachers to choose their words precisely and avoid teaching shortcuts that simplify nuanced concepts.
In this webinar, you’ll learn to reframe misconceptions as catalysts for “sense making” and move away from the idea that math is only about “answer getting.” Instead, we embrace student-centered reasoning by offering specific content strategies and classroom practices that support student thinking.
