Creating a learning environment that is exciting and engaging for students takes more than a good curriculum. How can teachers establish a classroom environment that helps students successfully learn mathematics while enjoying the process? Hit the ground running with effective ideas for establishing a classroom culture that inspires deep learning and gets students excited. In this edWeb podcast, you’ll learn:

  • What kinds of math tasks and problems should you be asking your students to work on
  • How to inspire students to construct their own understanding versus simply giving them algorithms
  • Questioning strategies to keep students thinking when they struggle
  • How your walls and classroom set up can help stimulate engagement while supporting your learning goals
  • How to arrange your classroom so that mathematical resources are readily accessible
  • How to arrange desks to stimulate collaborative mathematical investigations and discourse
  • How to establish a safe culture for sharing ideas and developing a growth mindset during the first few weeks of school

Listen to Jay Meadows and Jessica Alstete as they explore powerful, research-based best practices and draw on their extensive years of experience in creating engaging and thriving math classrooms.
