Leveraging The Flipped Classroom to Foster Writing and Discourse in Mathematics

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

One of the most important skills our students need in the 21st century is the ability to communicate effectively. In addition, we know that learning should be social, where concepts are constructed in the students’ minds as often as possible. Creating these situations in a math classroom is often difficult but the flipped environment provides a perfect context for powerful discourse around mathematics to flourish. We will share ways in which we leverage flipping to foster quality conversations and writing opportunities in math class from an elementary, middle, and high school perspective. This session includes teachers from each grade level so there's something for everyone!
