Modelling explicit teaching focusing on intuitive strategies

This free online professional learning module will explore how multiple strategies can be used to solve a problem and how intuitive strategies and teacher questioning can be leveraged when explicitly teaching mathematics.

In this module you will:

  • explore features of explicit teaching after observing a lesson
  • examine how mathematical discourse focused on intuitive strategies can be used in explicit teaching
  • explore teacher questioning as a strategy that assists students to extend their mathematical understanding
  • plan a lesson to trial with students.
