Participants will engage in math tasks in an environment that is conducive to thinking. Based on research by Dr. Liljedahl, these tasks will enable us to dig deep into the components of a thinking classroom. Collectively, let us learn to manage flow and let go to create a student-centered experience.
Recorded January 2020. Alex teaches at Glebe Collegiate Institute and Jimmy teaches at Colonel By secondary school (both with the Ottawa Carlton DSB).
