Imagine a classroom where students are engaged, where mathematical concepts are not just memorized but deeply understood, and where problem-solving and critical thinking are the norms. ASU Prep believes in the power of such a classroom — a “thinking classroom.” We invite educators to revolutionize their teaching practices with our new professional development series: Developing Mathematical Minds: Empowering Educators for Thinking Classrooms.
This transformative series is designed to equip educators with tools to build a dynamic and engaging learning atmosphere that fosters deep mathematical understanding. We aim to empower educators to create a classroom where students are encouraged to think critically, solve problems creatively, and communicate their ideas effectively.
Participants will delve into the principles and practices of building thinking classrooms, learning how to cultivate a growth mindset in students, nurturing positive mathematical culture, and integrating technology to promote critical thinking. With each session, participants will gain insights into strategies that emphasize student-centered learning, collaboration, and inquiry-based instruction.
