Timothy D. Kanold explores how collaborative teams can improve student achievement in mathematics through the balanced use of lower-level- and higher-level-cognitive-demand tasks and classroom discourse combined with meaningful formative feedback during instruction. This session is based on his book Mathematics Instruction and Tasks in a PLC at Work from Solution Tree’s Every Student Can Learn Mathematics series (2018).
Dr. Kanold shares six research-affirmed lesson design criteria essential to student perseverance and sustained effort in mathematics class every day. He shares sample mathematics tasks and online resources for teacher support.
Participants use the PLC mathematics lesson design model to:
• Define the difference between relevant and meaningful mathematics.
• Consider how to use prior knowledge and academic vocabulary activities effectively.
• Examine the balanced use of lower-level- and higher-level-cognitive-demand tasks during
class.
• Consider the balanced use of in-class student discourse as part of formative assessment
feedback when students get stuck during a lesson.
