Presenters: Alba Fejzo and Tiago Carvalho
Summary: The Visible Maths Pedagogy participatory action research project, based at Stoke Newington School, is a collaboration between Alba Fejzo and Tiago Carvalho (both mathematics teachers at the school) and Dr. Pete Wright (UCL Institute of Education). The study focuses on developing strategies teachers can use to make their pedagogy more visible, i.e. to help all students recognise their intentions as teachers, whilst adopting progressive approaches to teaching secondary mathematics in mixed attainment groups. It aims to explore the potential of these strategies to reduce the large gaps in mathematics achievement existing between children from different socio-economic groups. In this session we will model some of the activities and strategies developed through the project and discuss some of the findings.
