Standards-Based Classroom Modeling:
Problem Solving and Formative Assessment for the Math TEKS

The Classroom Modeling session demonstrates the problem-solving, assessment and communication process across all levels to support the TEKS for Mathematical Processes and Mathematical Content.

Components for this workshop can include:

  • A working portfolio lesson that addresses the request of the classroom teacher(s). The lesson may focus on a particular mathematical content area, standard, strategy, multi-step problem and/or using mathematical language;
  • Questioning students about their thinking in order to generate mathematical connections, communication and reasoning, both verbally and in writing;
  • Demonstrating personalized instruction;
  • Introducing instructional techniques that promote students' understanding and use of the Mathematical Process Standards as well as students' higher-order thinking, reasoning and communication skills;
  • Building student confidence and interest in mathematical problem solving and communication; and/or
  • Utilizing Exemplars open-ended problems to introduce mathematical content, representations, language and connections, and to encourage mathematical discussion.

Our teacher-friendly tasks are designed to support both the Common Core and Citywide instructional expectations. GO Math! alignments are also available.

Here's What People Are Saying

'We need to start,' said my students last week. They told me to hurry up, read the problem and pass out the paper. This is a noticeable change in student attitudes toward problem solving. They are no longer meek, frightened, inhibited problem solvers.
