The following is some information on the two collaborative professional inquiry projects that I will be sharing during the session.
Reggio-Inspired Mathematics: A Cross-District Collaborative Professional Inquiry
Our provincial association, the BCAMT, has provided grants to a project that facilitates cross-district professional inquiry into Reggio-Inspired Mathematics, looking at how these principles and practices might enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics in primary classrooms. The following are a collection of collaboratively written articles for our provincial journal, Vector.
Place-Based Mathematics: A K-7 School-Based Professional Inquiry
Teachers at Byng Elementary engaged in a two-year professional inquiry examining the ways place-based mathematics might enhance students’ engagement and interest in mathematics. This project was supported by a BC Aboriginal Enhancement Schools Network grant.
