Spring 2015 PD Using Bansho as a Way to Connect Students’ Thinking

Spring 2015 PD Using Bansho as a Way to Connect Students’ Thinking WHEN: Tuesday, March 10, 2015, 6:30 – 8:30 pm (Supper included) WHERE: Humber College North Campus, room B101 Presenters are Mary Fiore and Tina Grandy, Peel District School Board Teaching and learning in the 21st century requires a shift in both teacher thinking and teacher practice. A new way of thinking about and doing mathematics is required if we are going to consider mathematics as an experience that engages our thoughts and emotions – something desperately needed if we want our students to share the same experiences. Recording, organizing, and connecting students' mathematical thinking through the use of Bansho provides students with opportunities to reflect on and communicate their understanding of mathematical concepts. Having students reflect on their own thinking and the thinking of others is an important part of consolidating student learning. Using Bansho as a way of consolidating student learning and understanding is an opportunity for teachers to think differently about student thinking.
