At the beginning of the school year I was fortunate enough to work with many dedicated teachers around the idea of Mathematician’s Workshop. Our day together revolved around a framework I had created as a consolidation of my learning about successful mathematics instruction in the classroom. This is a synthesis of many ideas from many mathematics educators and experts.
To explain my thinking of this model and to provide an example of how it is working in a classroom I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to create a Periscope with one of my session participants. Mrs. Colleen Johnson was so very generous with her time and expertise to share how she is making Mathematician’s Workshop live in here grade 4/5 classroom.
