How Kids Benefit From Learning To Explain Their Math Thinking

How Kids Benefit From Learning To Explain Their Math Thinking | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
Math teachers of older students sometimes struggle to get students to explain their thinking with evidence. It’s hard to get kids in the habit of talking about how they are thinking about a problem when they’ve had many years of instruction that focused on getting the “right answer.” That’s why educators are now trying to get students in the habit of explaining their thinking at a young age. The Teaching Channel captured kindergarten and first grade teachers pushing students to give evidence for their answers in situations where there are several ways to think about a problem.

The debate over screen time for our children not only continues, but is constantly changing.  Except in a few relatively isolated conclaves, no screen time is no longer an option, but limits on the amount of screen time is also becoming complicated since some screen time is quite beneficial.  The next few years are going to see an adjustment and accommodation that aims toward minimizing negative influences. -Lon
