In a Thinking 101 Classroom, the teacher knows that visual spatial models support learning that lasts. Students build recall of facts alongside the ability to reason and apply them in new situations and problems. In a thinking classroom, students know how to learn, how to recall and apply what they learn, how to explain what they are learning and how to challenge themselves in their own learning.
The B.E.R.C.S. framework focuses teachers and learners on developing basic knowledge and basic thinking skills. Reasoning with core relationships between numbers is just as important as recalling core facts. Students must master both.
Learn more about the B.E.R.C.S. framework for spatializing your teaching by attending a Summer Workshop or invite Geri to your school or division to do in class demonstrations, run courses, give an interactive group presentations or present to parents.
