Explore how high school mathematics teachers can inspire student learning and improve daily student achievement and effort. Student agency in mathematics is nurtured through the balanced use of lower-level- and higher-level-cognitive-demand tasks and the use of balanced classroom discourse combined with meaningful formative student feedback during instruction. This engaging edWebinar is based on Dr. Kanold’s books from The Every Student Can Learn Mathematics series (2018).

Dr. Kanold shares six research-affirmed lesson-design criteria essential to student perseverance, self-efficacy, and sustained effort in a high school mathematics classroom every day. He also shares how to manage the effective use of each of these six criteria, and viewers will be invited to self-rank their current lesson design progress using his lesson design evaluation tool!

Viewers will:

  • Define the difference between relevant and meaningful mathematics
  • Consider the effective use of prior knowledge and academic vocabulary activities
  • 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 the lesson

This recorded edWebinar will be of value to high school teachers, school and district leaders, math curriculum directors, math coaches, and math department chairs.
