Taking Action Book Study: Chapter 4 (Cohort A)

Taking Action Chapter 4 promo graphicChapter 4: Conceptual understanding and procedural fluency are important, interrelated components of students’ mathematics learning. The December CCTM Taking Action book study explores the relationship between these two critical components of mathematics teaching and how to sequence tasks and leverage the equity-based mathematics teaching practice to enhance students’ conceptual understanding and their procedural fluency.

The objectives of the Taking Action book study are:

  • To increase teacher's understanding of the key features of the eight effective mathematics teaching practices
  • To examine how the teaching practices interact as a framework for equitable mathematics instruction
  • To recognize how the teaching practices support deeper learning of mathematics
  • To provide a variety of actives, strategies, and resources to assist teachers in applying the ideas discussed in the book to their own practices.

Workshop Agenda:

  1. 15 minutes of reflection
  2. 30-40 minutes on the Analyzing Teaching and Learning (ATL)
