Initiatives in Teaching & Learning 2

Tonight we focused on understanding TLLM (Teach Less, Learn More) better. What constitute the 'less' in Teach Less? The problems - Tiles Problem, Structure Problem, and Circle Problem gave us insights into the focus on a few big ideas - generalization, visualization, number sense, abstraction, metacognition.

We ended the lesson by examining how the pedagogies suggested in the PERI Report could help students develop these big ideas.
