151- Math Talk: Teaching Concepts and Skills through Illustrations and Stories

Thursday, April 14, 2011: 12:30 PM-1:30 PM
Marriott Ballroom 3/4 (Marriott Downtown)
Lead Speaker:
Char Forsten

A young child's understanding of the world is enlightened and expanded through stories and illustrations, so it makes sense to use these resources when teaching mathematics. You will learn to use "math talk," an approach based on a method used in Singapore, as a powerful way to provide purposeful practice through nursery rhymes, fairy tales, illustrations, and photographs.
