Lesson Studies

New lesson study groups are forming now! If you would like to be part of a small group of teachers to plan and observe lessons together on a schedule that you choose. To find out more email Ryan Dent! 

Supporting Productive Struggle

Tuesday June 12th, 2018 - Wednesday June 13th, 2018 | 8:00am-4:30pm

This unique conference will feature an amazing opportunity for attendees to observe two “live” public lessons taught with local students during the conference. The lesson study planning team, consisting of local educators from several districts, has developed an instructional unit that includes two research lessons designed specifically to shed light on how teachers can support students in productively struggling with mathematical concepts. Come collaboratively engage with educators in our region, state and beyond to deepen our understanding of this important quality we want to develop in our students.

Additionally, internationally recognized math education and lesson study expert, Dr. Akihiko Takahashi, will be providing “Final Comments” after each lesson, as well as a keynote address. Several break-out sessions will also occur during the conference.

TMT 6th-9th Grades

Monday June 18th, 2018 - Friday June 22nd, 2018 | 8:30am-5pm

The Teaching Mathematical Thinking (TMT) course fulfills the 3 credit MTI course requirement for Idaho teachers. This course provides an opportunity to study fundamental mathematical theory underlying the content area of number and operation and student reasoning of number and operation topics within a framework of a student-centered, problem-based classroom. Topics will include number systems, ways of representing numbers, meanings of operations and how they relate to one another, and computation within the number system as a foundation for algebra. Pedagogical topics will focus on attending to student thinking and reasoning through the use of discourse and questioning, professional noticing, and the effective use of manipulatives or other mathematical tools.

TMT K-5th Grades

Deepening Student's Mathematical Understanding: K-9th Grades

Wednesday August 8th, 2018 - Thursday August 9th, 2018 | 8:00am-4:30pm

In this collaborative, inquiry-based workshop by engaging with mathematical tasks & videos you will explore what it looks like for all students to understand and do mathematics, and which instructional practices we can use to best help classrooms with a wide range of learners achieve at deeper levels. 1 credit will be available.
