Increasing student engagement via collaboration and book study

This year our school focus was on increasing student engagement and improving students' literacy and numeracy skills.  40% of our students were asked these 3 questions:

  • Why are you learning math? 
  • How do you learn math the best?
  • How do you feel about math?

The scanning process was done via conversations with students.  80 % of our students said that they know that:

 

  • -math is important, 
  • - you can get a good job if you are good at math
  • - you can make a lot of money and have a good life.

 

70% of our students said that they are good at math, but were not able to say why they are good at it. 
30% of our students said that they are not good at math because they don't like numbers, cannot remember numbers,  their parents are not good at math.
In order to foster a growth mindset in students our staff engaged in:
  • Book study: "Mathematical Mindsets" by Joe Boaler
  • "Number Talks" by Sherri Parrish and 
  • "Mind Up"- engaging mathematical approach to designing math lessons and innovative teaching
Our year-end results show that numeracy results improved for all students.
