We asked participants about their biggest takeaways from DAY 3 of our Summer Institute. Here's what they told us:
"Students should be given the space and opportunity to process their thinking (writing, reading, taking notes/annotating) before starting a task."
"There is no right or wrong way to write math."
"The biggest takeaway I have for today is the appreciation I have for this group community....It almost chokes me up a little... This group is so willing to help...their willingness to help me is staggering."
"Specializing allows students to test new learning with numbers they're comfortable with."
Today we thought about what it means to "WRITE" in mathematics.
As we worked through the mathematical tasks we thought about the math literacy practices we were using, including thinking with and through symbols, annotating, and specializing. The group also discussed some specific teaching practices we might use to support our students as they engage in math literacy practices, including: writing for a particular audience, writing for a particular purpose, and writing to learn.
We're looking forward to a great last day for our Summer Institute 2022!
