Building Thinking Classrooms
For All Grade Level Mathematics Teachers



14 Teaching Practices for Enhancing Learning

Important Session Information:


Teachers often find it difficult to implement lessons that help students go beyond rote memorization and repetitive calculations. In fact, institutional norms and habits that permeate all classrooms can actually be enabling "non-thinking" student behavior. Sparked by observing teachers struggle to implement rich mathematics tasks to engage students in deep thinking, Building Thinking Classroom researchers have translated 15 years of research into this practical guide on how to move toward a thinking classroom. Teachers will see 14 optimal practices for thinking that create an ideal setting for deep mathematics learning to occur. This guide

  • Provides the what, why, and how of each practice and answers teachers' most frequently asked questions
  • Includes firsthand accounts of how these practices foster thinking through teacher and student interviews and student work samples
  • Offers a plethora of macro moves, micro moves, and rich tasks to get started
  • Organizes the 14 practices into four toolkits that can be implemented in order and built on throughout the year

When combined, these unique research-based practices create the optimal conditions for learner-centered, student-owned deep mathematical thinking and learning, and have the power to transform mathematics classrooms like never before.
