Five Essential Instructional Shifts for Supporting Rigorous Standards

About This Course

This course 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.

The five essential instructional shifts of focus include:

  1. Students provide strategies rather than learning them from the teachers
  2. Teacher provides strategies “as if” from students
  3. Students create the context
  4. Students do the sense making
  5. Students talk to students
