To create confident problem solvers, we must not kill student thinking. Learn to use the 5 Principles of Conjecture, Communication, Collaboration, Chaos, and Celebration to design a classroom environment that promotes innovation, and allows students to communicate thinking clearly. Small groups will reflect on how this translates into classroom practice. They will also experience specific strategies associated with the 5 Principles and create a plan for redesigning their own school cultures.
