    Workshop Overview


    • Provide teachers with a deeper understanding of what the eight effective mathematics teaching practices are, how they can be implemented in the classroom, and what can be gained from making them a part of one’s daily teaching practice. Following an overview of the eight practices, teachers will engage in a set of activities (e.g., exploring rich mathematical tasks, analyzing narrative and video cases of classroom instruction, analyzing student work samples) that will highlight a subset of the practices in more depth. The session will include with an opportunity for teachers to collaboratively plan and discuss a lesson that attends to the eight effective teaching practices
