EL has revised the workshop model to align with the Common Core instructional shifts, embed ongoing assessment to increase responsiveness to student needs, and help students develop self-reliance and perseverance. The first component in this revised workshop (Workshop 2.0) asks students to “grapple” independently with a problem or task. The second component is a collaborative opportunity for students to be metacognitive about their own approaches, justify their mathematical reasoning, and consider others’ mathematical reasoning and thinking. Teacher Giselle Isbell creates a classroom culture that supports this type of independent grappling and math discourse with her fifth-graders at Anser Charter School in Boise, Idaho.
