25. Productive Math Struggle k-8

Program: Instructional Strategies

Audience: Any Teachers in grades K through 8 and AIS Teachers

Dates: 12/10/2021

Starting Soon
In this PD, Teachers will be learning about Jon Sangiovanni's 6 Point Action Plan for Fostering Perseverance. Struggle is hard. Productive struggle is power. All students face struggle, and they should-it is how they learn and grow. The teacher's job is not to remove struggle, but rather to value and harness it, helping students develop good habits of productive struggle. But what's missing for many educators is an action plan for how to achieve this, especially when it comes to math. Persevering through difficult challenges to reach new learning is the core of Productive Math Struggle. When left unsupported, struggle can become unproductive and demoralizing, negatively influencing students' mathematical identities. Through Jon's book I will help guide teachers through six specific actions-including valuing, fostering, building, planning, supporting, and reflecting on struggle-to create a game plan for overcoming obstacles by sharing • Actionable steps, activities, and tools for implementation • Instructional tasks and vignettes representative of each grade level • Real-world examples showcasing classroom photos and student work samples Revolving around the idea that math is a way of thinking and understanding, and not just the pursuit of answers and procedures, this idea empowers students to embrace productive struggle to build essential skills for learning and living-both inside and outside the classroom.

"You have been stretched, you have been pulled. You have been through the wringer, tested, and tested again. You probably feel like a rubber band, holding it together but under a lot of tension. But the problem with the rubber band analogy is this: they either break or they go back to their former shape. Neither are good options for you, your family, or your students. We need to see and feel the excitement of learning again. We need to engage with our colleagues again. But we also need to heal from the traumatic experiences that have shaped the recent past. It's time to rebound." (From introduction to the "Rebound" book. We understand that everyone is feelings this way.
