Classroom Modeling: Observing Math Exemplars in the Classroom


 

The Classroom Modeling session demonstrates the problem-solving, assessment and communication process across all levels.

This professional opportunity was developed in response to numerous requests for Exemplars trainers to exercise Exemplars tasks in participants' classrooms.

Components can include:

  • A working portfolio lesson that addresses the request of the classroom teacher(s). The lesson may focus on a particular content area, strategy, mathematical language or multistep problem.
  • Questioning students about their thinking in order to generate connections and to communicate student reasoning both verbally and in writing
  • Demonstrating differentiated instruction
  • Guiding students toward self-assessment
  • Building student confidence and interest in problem solving and communication
  • Utilizing Exemplars problems for introducing content representations, mathematical language and connections and to encourage mathematical discussion
