Join this 1-session virtual workshop from Project Zero (PZ), led by Mark Church, PZ classroom faculty, PZ’s “Learning to Think, Thinking to Learn Project” consultant, and co-author of The Power of Making Thinking Visible.

What is understanding?  How does it develop?  What types of thinking moves help students both retain what they learn and transfer it to new and unfamiliar contexts?  The ideas of Project Zero – particularly Teaching for Understanding and Making Thinking Visible – have had a lot of resonance with teachers across a variety of grade levels and subject areas for a number of years. This workshop is designed to reflect upon these overarching questions specifically with mathematics teaching and learning in mind.  Though not a “how to implement” workshop, participants will find it useful to consider examples from a wide range of K-12 mathematics experiences that give perspective as to how other teachers in the mathematics context have come to grow legs to Project Zero ideas. This workshop is designed for educators teaching mathematics and working with learners of all ages from pre-K through secondary school as well as mathematics instructional coaches, and school leaders interested in the teaching and learning of mathematics and Project Zero ideas.

Format: All Project Zero workshops are held on Harvard’s Zoom platform and supported by Harvard’s Canvas platform. Participants will receive invitations to the Canvas and Zoom platforms within 4 business days prior to the date of the workshop session.
