Learning from Student Work: Make the Most of Your PoW Membership
The long-term outcome for students working with the Problems of the Week is a combination of good problem solving and strong mathematical communication. Figuring out how to encourage students to reflect and revise is as much a process for a teacher as it is for their students.
In this course you will have the opportunity to mentor student work submitted to the Math Forum from classrooms around the world. The goal is for you to become comfortable as well as successful in prompting students to develop sound mathematical practices through written feedback. After honing this skill with a diverse range of students, you might want to enroll in "Mentor Your Own: Supporting Strong Development of Mathematical Practices" to learn how to integrate written feedback into your own classroom practice.
Who: Current subscribers of the Problems of the Week who want to become familiar with the Math Forum's mentoring process. Participation requires membership at the Class level or higher. Non-members or Individual Teacher members may purchase the necessary access at a discounted rate.
Credit: All individuals who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate indicating that they have completed 15 hours of professional development. This is equivalent to 1.5 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
