Abstract: Differentiating Teaching: One lesson for all! Part 3: Orchestrating a productive mathematical discussion.
"It is better to work on a problem in many different ways rather than work on many problems in the same way." Georg Polya.
The workshop series “Differentiating Teaching: One lesson for all!” is presented as a three part series. In this workshop, the third & final in the series, Michele will focus on : "Orchestrating a productive mathematical discussion.”
Presenter: Michele Klooger
Presenter Profile: Currently Michele is a teaching associate within the Faculty of Education, Monash University. In addition, she facilitates the EMU (Extending Mathematical Understanding) and GRIN (Getting Ready in Numeracy) mathematics intervention programs for the university. She also facilitates the Leading Differentiated Teaching in Mathematics Course on the Numeracy Suite for Bastow’s Institute of Educational Leadership. Over the past 28 years she has worked in a wide variety of educational settings from primary through to secondary schools, gaining leadership experience through facilitating learning, managing teams and working to build effective learning communities, with a particular focus on numeracy and mathematics skills and concept development. This work has involved supporting teachers and graduates to analyse data in order to select, adapt and sequence lessons, meeting the demands of the subject and the curriculum expectations whilst also modelling pedagogical approaches that best support teaching and learning in a 21st century classroom. Michele continues to maintain a visible presence in classrooms and is committed to providing opportunities for leaders of mathematics, teachers and preservice teachers to consider contemporary views on teaching and learning mathematics with a focus on research informed pedagogies.
