Problem solving is an effective way for students to learn to think mathematically and to acquire deep knowledge and understanding of the mathematics they are learning.

In this day of professional learning, we look at a series of such tools, emerging from research, that can help to build an environment conducive to problem-based learning. We will unpack the research behind Thinking Classrooms which demonstrates that a problem-based learning environment and culture can quickly be established, even in classrooms where students resist change.

The assessment workshop is designed for teachers who have been implementing Thinking Classrooms practices and are ready to delve into assessment. In addition to the assessment practices laid out in Building Thinking Classrooms, participants will revisit and explore advanced teacher moves relevant to the other practices explored in the Introduction (and Intermediate) workshop(s).

These topics will be covered in the workshop:

  • Evaluate what you value
  • Formative assessment
  • Summative assessment

It is recommended that teachers have attended an Introduction (and Intermediate) workshop prior to the assessment workshop.
