Which approach works best? Rich tasks, collaborative work, number talks, problem-based learning, direct instruction…
In this book , the authors/ educators assert it’s not about which one, it’s about when and show you how to design high-impact instruction so all students demonstrate more than a year’s worth of mathematics learning for a year spent in school.
You choose the right approach at the right time, depending upon where learners are within three phases of learning: surface learning phase, deep learning phase, and transfer phase.
This results in“visible” learning because the effect is tangible.
Chapter by chapter, and equipped with video clips, planning tools, rubrics, and templates, you get the inside track on which instructional strategies to use at each phase of the learning cycle.
