Building Thinking Classrooms by Peter Liljedahl

Virtual Book Study

Author Peter Liljedahl will join the book study on January 29th!

Sparked by observing teachers struggle to implement rich mathematics tasks to engage students in deep thinking, Peter Liljedahl has translated his 15 years of research into this practical guide on how to move toward a thinking classroom. Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics, Grades K-12 helps teachers implement 14 optimal practices for thinking that create an ideal setting for deep mathematics learning to occur. This guide

  • Provides the what, why, and how of each practice

  • Includes firsthand accounts of how these practices foster thinking

  • Offers a plethora of macro moves, micro moves, and rich tasks to get started

Join educators from all over Wisconsin (and beyond) to engage in a discussion on this wonderful resource.

Register by January 9th to guarantee delivery of the book and getting the necessary information to be ready for the first session.
