Maths: how do you structure your lessons?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by KatharineH, Feb 8, 2012.

  1. I am a PGCE student. I feel torn between being told to use a 4 stage lesson on one hand and on the other hand to use more interactive strategies in whole class teaching where pupils construct their own understanding.
    Is it possible to do both? If so how?

    What does your ideal maths lesson look like?

  3. I think it depends entirely on what you are teaching them. If you are keeping them whole class for longer you must make sure you have lots of activities, a good pace, plenty of interaction and ideally something kinaesthetic that gets them up and about. A good mix of different lesson types would be ideal, in my opinion.
