Rebuilding Resilience In Your Maths ClassroomOnline
How can you help build resilience in your maths students? And, in particular, how can you do this post-lockdown?
This twilight session will look at which pedagogical approaches help to do this, and also what language and behaviours improve pupils' independence and resilience when tackling mathematical problems.
Ideally, you will have attended the "prologue" session on 30th June before attending this one, but it is not essential. That session can be booked here: https://amsp.org.uk/events/details/7603
This session will be repeated 3 more times:
- September 22nd 9-11 a.m. https://amsp.org.uk/events/details/7617
- October 7th 4-6 p.m. https://amsp.org.uk/events/details/7646
- October 15th 2-4 p.m. https://amsp.org.uk/events/details/7618
- Understand why some pupils give up when tackling maths problems
- Explore which pedagogical approaches help build resilience in learners
- Understand how specific use of language can help build resilience in young learners
Who will benefit from attending?
This session would benefit any teachers of Key Stage 3 or 4 mathematics, whether they are NQTs or experienced teachers or Heads of Department. Teaching Assistants working within maths departments will also find this session useful
Materials and Equipment
It would be useful for you to have access to some old GCSE past papers (printed out, ideally) to look at (and scribble on) in the session.
We will meet online via the "Big Blue Button" conferencing software.
You will receive a link half an hour before the meeting and this will take you to the meeting browser (please do not pass this link on to anyone else).
There is no need to download any software beforehand: BBB is designed to be used on a variety of platforms (including most smartphones) but you will get the best experience via a desktop or laptop computer, running either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox as the browser.
You will need a webcam, microphone and headphones/speakers to take engage fully.
Any teacher or Teaching Assistant (of any subject) wishing to attend may do so, although this is aimed primarily at teachers of mathematics.
This is the main session, following the prologue in June: https://amsp.org.uk/events/details/7603
This session will be repeated three more times:
