High performing schools develop and can clearly articulate their aspirations. School leaders and teachers need to be able to articulate what they do and why they teach the way they do. For the subject of mathematics, it is important that our beliefs about teaching mathematics are consistent with our beliefs about learning mathematics.
Schools that demonstrate high performance in mathematics develop a shared set of beliefs with goals that:
• take a whole-school approach to enhancing mathematical outcomes
• establish policies and structures that encourage collaboration among teachers
• introduce professional development programs to support teachers
• involve parents and the wider community
This session will detail the professional learning process developed by Tim Waugh for the Diocese of Lismore to assist schools in navigating this vital conversation.
Time: 11:55 am - 12:55 pm
