PLEASE NOTE: This workshop is designed to help support educators who are already implementing number talks regularly in their classrooms or supporting those who are. The focus will be on refining classroom practices to make number talks more meaningful, effective, and push student efficiency and thinking to a deeper level.
If you are interested in attending a Number Talks 1.0 Workshop please contact Christen Schwartz: firstname.lastname@example.org
“When teachers plan for and steer productive discussions, children realize it’s worth listening to one another and that it’s okay to be pressed to say more.”
– Kazemi & Hintz
In this one-day workshop we will embark on how to structure and lead productive mathematical discussions. We will emphasize setting mathematical goals for each number talk, learn how to use models to develop students’ conceptual understanding, explore how to productively move students toward efficient strategies for problem solving, and provide timely and appropriate feedback to students. Throughout the workshop we will engage and explore open source resources to take our number talks to the next level in student mathematical thinking and engagement.
Cost: $125 per particpant
One CEU available through CSUEB for $89
Intentional Talk book and Lunch will be provided
