Should We Stop Trying So Hard to Teach?

  • PDCE Mathematics Associate Director, Faith Muirhead gave a TED Talk entitled, “Should We Stop Trying So Hard to Teach?” In this talk, Dr Muirhead uses examples from her own teaching to highlight how sometimes we get so caught up in what we are teaching that we fail to remember we are teaching individual children. Each child in our classrooms has particular experiences, understandings, and gaps in their learning. Our job as teachers is to help uncover and understand these experiences so that we are better positioned to help children find ways to build on their experiences and knowledge in mathematically rich and sophisticated ways.
