Addition and Subtraction Lesson Study, Grades K-2

  • Riverdale Avenue Community School 76 Riverdale Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11212 United States (map)

Join the Math Collective Thursday, January 18 for an all-day lesson study focusing on addition and subtraction through the lens of Operations and Algebraic thinking.

Participating teachers will have an opportunity to watch a lesson, observe the results of that lesson, practice conferring with students, and reflect on the experience with teachers from across the city.

The all-day study will take place at Dos Puentes Elementary School in a 1st grade classroom, with visits to a K and 2nd grade classroom.

Below is the rough schedule for the day:

8:30 - 9:30 - Introduction: Planning team leads a discussion around how they imagine the lesson design supports students in developing a positive mathematical mindset ("All students believe they have the power to make mathematical sense using their linguistic, reasoning and community resources") and provides thinking experiences around the properties of addition and subtraction.
9:30 - 10:30 - Lesson in 1st Grade
10:30 - 10:45 - Quiet reflection
10:45 - 12:00 - Debrief
