Teaching Inquiry

This year as part of our professional development, we (the teachers) are looking at areas to specifically focus our teaching practice on. My inquiry is about assisting children in maths with cognitively engaging discussions in problem solving.

I really want to see my children thrive this year. In micro groups, I would like to see children take risks and not be afraid to share their ideas. I want the children to be active participators in their learning. I will use talk moves, solo taxonomy and other strategies so that children are thinking and articulating their thinking clearly.
