WMC Virtual Book Study

Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics by Peter Liljedahl

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.  We welcome both new and last year’s participants to join us as we continue the conversation with many opportunities to share and expand your knowledge about these practices.

Guiding and facilitating the conversations will be Michelle Parks, Erin Hommowum, and Deb Heitman
