#8: How We Can Redesign Success in Our Classrooms (and why we should). A Math Mentoring Moment with Katrien Vance.
By Kyle Pearce & Jon Orr
In this episode we talk to Katrien Vance who is a veteran teacher that set a total different approach to give her students a sense of direction and help them stay focused. We outline why she did it, how she did it, and how it all worked out for the students. You’ll learn: How to redefine success in your classroom. How to create lessons where students ask more questions. How to create a math class where the word problems are the easiest problems to solve. Why you should plan lessons that encourage thinking. How to avoid the assumption that students can’t think during your math lesson. Benefits of getting the students to talk and opening up space to help them lead. How trusting kids with what they know will benefit their overall performance.
