CCSS Mathematical Socratic Seminars Grades K-5 – No. 193

A K -5 classroom that supports literacy development is one where students and teachers demonstrate understanding of the language process. Teachers make connections, verbally and in writing, and close reading is an integral part of the learning process. The big shifts of the Common Core in K-12 mathematical literacy will drive this course as participants learn to integrate literacy strategy with mathematical processes through the strategies that include word walls, close reading, using evidence to support ideas, varied grouping and problem-solving.

Course Objectives:

  • Examine, evaluate and practice with research-based methods of problem solving through questioning.
  • Practice with the tools of math articulation process through Socratic questioning.
  • Understand how to organize and facilitate mathematical Socratic seminars.
