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

Here's What People Are Saying

We are now in our fourth year of using Exemplars. We have a district license and every campus and every math teacher regularly uses an Exemplars problem either for assessment or instruction. These campuses really see the benefits and enjoy watching their students grow mathematically.
