Teach21 Summer Workshop: Scaling Up Student Success: Developing & Leveraging Your Understanding of Additive Versus Multiplicative Thinking Across Grades 2-5

Date: Tuesday - June 15, 2021
Time: 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Location: Online/virtual
Teach21 is a professional development institute focused on 21st-century teaching and learning. Workshops are developed and taught by faculty and staff of The School at Columbia University, with focus on innovation, integration and technology in a wide array of content areas.
Researchers and educators have written a great deal about additive and multiplicative thinking—the difference between the two schemas, the hierarchies within each schema, and why students are bound to struggle with all higher-level math if we don’t transition them from thinking additively to multiplicatively during the elementary grades. Unfortunately, the best of this content is dispersed across dozens of academic papers, presentations, and teaching texts, and much of the writing is unforgivingly academic. This workshop unifies such “best of” content and puts it in your hands in accessible, actionable chunks. You will be introduced to ways of identifying, describing and modeling additive and multiplicative growth in terms that are clear and generalizable to yourself and your students. Furthermore, you will discover that a single visual model—the Cuisenaire strip—can be used to enrich your own content knowledge, assess student understanding, drive instruction, and improve equity of student voice and participation.
