Number Talks & Personalized Learning (ep. 35)

Holly and I discuss her implementation of a practice known as Number Talks as a way to teach learners how to develop their own individual strategies for solving math problems in a personalized way. This approach to teaching math personalizes the learning process for students and fosters within them a sense of learner agency as they are encouraged to creatively construct ways in which to solve the problems they’ve been posed with addressing. The conversation in this pod delves into how a Number Talk is facilitated, and Holly’s enthusiasm drives this episode as she shares her insights and first-hand experiences and with this personalized classroom practice.
