BMTN’s New Guide to Reflecting on Instructional Depth (GRID) Series
October 8, 2019
Kirk Walters and Toni Smith developed the GRID to help teachers reflect on their instruction, identify areas where they can be more student-centered, and select strategies to make incremental improvements in that direction. The four-part series provides step-by-step guidance for determining students’ depth of mathematical justifications and who is driving those justifications. It also gives teachers seeking to make their instruction more strongly student-centered concrete examples of each the four levels of depth and drivers to help in their self-assessments.
