Given the robust nature of learning sciences research, this website is best viewed on tablets and computers. A small screen experience is coming in the future.
On June 22, 2021, we will launch updated strategies for the Math PK-2 model, as well as additional updates to the Navigator that highlight equity, SEL, and culturally responsive teaching. To learn more, visit our Site Updates (available in the "About" menu at the top of any page).
Teaching learners how to label, identify, and manage Emotion helps them develop Self-regulation skills. By discussing emotions and strategies to manage them, learners are better equipped to navigate the emotions they experience to support their learning.
Apply It to Your Learning Environment
Conducting read-alouds with books about math can serve a dual purpose. First, such books engage learners in math through narrative. Then, having conversations about the characters allows learners to safely practice identifying and labelling emotions. They can also brainstorm ways that characters in the books can manage and control their emotions in a positive way, which can ultimately transfer to their own lives.
Discussing emotions varies by culture and comfort level. Similarly there are elements in the strategies that assume SEL and cultural practices that are more dominant in white middle class families.
Watch how this primary school teacher incorporates discussions about Emotion into his classroom. Through whole-class discussions and individual reflections, students are able to consider, label, and express their Emotions so they can be at their best for learning.
Apply It to Product Development
Provide opportunities for learners to explore, identify, and reflect on their emotions to help learners address possible math anxiety.
Include explicit encouraging messages when learners are struggling to help them practice staying positive even when things are challenging.
Incorporate growth mindset feedback to support the framing of positive emotions.
Invite learners to share how they are feeling at the end of a session to capture data relating math feelings with achievement.
