This course is open only to Bettendorf CSD staff.
This course unpacks the teaching approach that was used in an 18-lesson intervention that raised the achievement of students learning mathematics by the equivalent of 1.6 years of school. In the teaching intervention, Jo Boaler taught 6/7th graders by giving the students new knowledge of the brain, mindset and mathematics learning and taught through open, creative mathematics.
The course includes over 30 videos of the teaching and interviews with students. It also includes interviews with mindset guru Carol Dweck and leading mathematician Steve Strogatz. The course will be helpful for teacher of mathematics, K-16, and leaders of mathematics. It consists in-person sessions allowing participants to process the information from the online portion of the course with colleagues and brainstorm ways to implement what has been learned in mathematics classrooms.
