Over the last few weeks it became more and more difficult to ignore the requests to put on a workshop that would enable teachers who have not yet had the chance to hear about Natural Maths.
Helping schools that have made a commitment to follow the Natural Maths pedagogy is one of our highest priorities and to be told that help is needed was the deciding factor in our decision to make April 26th a special day for any who would like to join us.
The workshop that we have planned will give an overview of mental routines, problematised situations, strategy lessons and that all-important reflection component of a maths lesson. We will also cover assessment with particular reference to the general capabilities. I could go on, but suffice it to say that if you’re new to a Natural Maths school I’m sure that you will find this workshop helps you become attuned to our approach to teaching maths.
