The purpose of this course is to connect the Visible Learning research to instructional strategies that accelerate student learning in mathematics education. You will examine dynamic and high-probability teaching strategies that support surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning and see these strategies in action with video from real classrooms. This course is designed for teachers focused on mathematics instruction across all grades K–12.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Explain and evaluate the characteristics of mathematical tasks and talk that make learning visible;
- Demonstrate the importance of well-timed, effective strategies and instructional routines for mathematics education; and
- Employ mathematics curriculum instruction practices as they relate to the three-phase learning process (surface learning, deep learning, and transfer learning)
