Episode Info:

In this episode, we’ll dive into a conversation with Dr. Kristopher Childs, a Mathematics Educator, Presenter, and Speaker from Orlando, Florida. Kris joins us for an insightful conversation about shifting mathematics instruction from the “I do, We do, You do” approach to a problem based teaching model broken down into 6 stages. As the conversation progresses, we will learn that not only does Kris dislike the gradual release of responsibility model for math class; he passionately describes why it actually “sucks”. Listen in as we discuss how we can make changes to our mathematics teaching practice to increase access and equity for all students.

You’ll Learn: 

  • The 6 stages of mathematics instruction and why you should be thinking about them as you prepare your lessons. 
  • How to Teach for Depth and not width
  • How to view assessment as a way to learn who you students are. 
  • How can we help parents who want to help their kids. 
  • Why we need to ditch the gradual release of responsibility. 
  • How to promote access and equity in the mathematics classroom
