Do you ever hear “I don’t get it” or “I don’t know what to do.” or even, “I know the answer, I just don’t know how to explain it.”?  As teachers, it is important to help our students address their struggles and recognize that there are choices in how they respond.  Research suggests that struggling to make sense of math is necessary to learn mathematics with understanding and to learn mathematics deeply.

NCTM in Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All (2014) identified the support of productive struggle in learning mathematics as one of the eight important teaching practices.

Workshop Objectives:
Explore answers to the following questions:

  • What is productive struggle and why does it matter? 
  • What does productive struggle look like in a classroom?
  • How do we create an environment for nurturing productive struggle? 
  • What are student and teacher behaviors of productive struggle?

Who should attend?
 Administrators, teacher leaders, classroom teachers and school-based teams


CESA 6 makes every effort to accommodate basic dietary needs such as vegetarian, gluten free and basic food allergies. Because of the number of meals served and the number of items used each day, along with food product changes from our food vendors, we cannot guarantee that every allergen in the food served will be identified and labeled. Guests concerned with food allergies must be aware of this risk. CESA 6 does not assume liability for adverse reactions to food consumed or items one may come into contact with while eating at a CESA 6 event. To better serve our guests with dietary restrictions or allergies, please go into your myQuickReg account and update the special accommodations section. Notice of a special dietary need must be made in advance of the event.
