Everyone Could Use a Helping Hand: The Role of Peer Feedback in Developing Mathematical Thinking

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

You’ve heard it: “use more pictures and words” or “organize your work better.” Ugh! 
Tired of hearing the same feedback suggestions that just did not make a difference in improving learning, we set out to develop an approach to peer-to-peer feedback that would revolutionize our math classroom. We knew that in order for our students to give better feedback, they needed to truly appreciate WHY they were giving it, and HOW to make it meaningful. 
From this journey evolved, “Helping Hands.” We'll share the success criteria that has been co-created with students for a math task and model how weak feedback can be kicked up out of the stratosphere with thoughtful choices in language and reflective mathematical thinking. We'll demonstrate to implement this practice with your students, and, using videos, testimonials and maybe even a live Q&A with our students in Toronto, you'll hear first-hand how it is having a positive impact on our students!  can have a positive impact on their learning!
