Five Essential Instructional Shifts for Supporting Rigorous Standards©

About This Course

This course is presented by Dr. Juli K. Dixon, and covers the five essential instructional shifts that emphasize mathematical practices and the content they support, emphasizing how authentic video in classrooms enhances these shifts. In addition, participants will engage with high cognitive demand tasks and learn how to support them during instruction.

Participants will also explore practices—with respect to teacher and student actions—to help them understand the norms that are supportive of student engagement in the practices. Creating a shared image of classrooms where the focus is on student engagement will also be explored.
