Children bring their intuitive knowledge of mathematics to school. How might we create more opportunities to listen deeply, notice, and name what children CAN do before making instructional decisions that build on what they know? When our teaching focuses on helping children cultivate healthy math identities they begin to see themselves as capable, competent, and confident mathematicians. A CGI math framework spotlights student participation in order to gain insight on how children think about mathematics and how their thinking develops along documented learning trajectories.
Session 1 - What is CGI Math and a Closer Look at Children’s Thinking About Addition and Subtraction

Session 2 - What does a Math Workshop Look / Sound Like and A Closer Look at Children’s Thinking About Multiplication and Division

Session 3 - Differentiation and Extending Multiplication and Division & Counting Collections

Session 4 - Children’s Thinking About Fractions and A Closer Look at the Benefits of Choral Counting

In this series of four, two-hour workshops we’ll study the essential practices that underpin a CGI framework and spotlight on children’s mathematical thinking and ideas. We’ll spend ample time investigating children’s brilliant solution strategies, by studying conference videos and work samples. We’ll also explore progress monitoring tools and resources that help educators and students co-author math tasks that foster productive struggle.

During the last part of each session, attendees will create a brief math task to practice with 1-2 case study students and bring back evidence (student work, photo, video) of learning to share with colleagues at the start of the next class.
Potential Audience:
Educators of grades K-6, math coaches, curriculum coordinators and administrators.
