With Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching Grades 6–8: The TQE Process, participants have the opportunity to engage in mathematics as learners. This unscripted video program addresses three specific goals: (1) to explore meaningful tasks as learners of mathematics for teaching, (2) to make sense of the TQE process (tasks, questioning, and evidence), and (3) to create a shared vision of classrooms where teachers are supporting the TQE process and students are engaged in meaningful mathematics learning experiences. The program accomplishes these goals through the use of challenging tasks for teachers, effective questions related to classroom content, and classroom video showing tasks modelled during instruction.

The workshop is divided into nine segments:

  1. Welcome and Opening

  2. Considering the Learner’s Role

  3. Using the TQE Process (Making Sense of Models)

  4. Creating a Shared Vision (Solving a Percent Problem)

  5. Engaging With Tasks (Exploring Different Ways That Lines Can Intersect)

  6. Making Sense of Mathematical Progressions (Interpreting Graphs to Create Context)

  7. Challenging Thinking (Dividing Fractions in Context)

  8. Providing Just-in-Time Support (Using a Table to Reason Proportionally)

  9. Closing

Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching Grades 6–8: The TQE Process can be viewed alone or used with the facilitator’s guide to provide one full-day workshop or two half-day workshops. It includes nine segments totalling forty-five minutes in length on DVD, a PowerPoint presentation on CD, a thirty-two page facilitator’s Guide in print and on CD, and a copy of the book Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching Grades 6–8.
