About the Masterclass – How I Blend Building Thinking Classroom And The 5 Practices

Facilitating rigorous math problems with students can be a challenging balance between chaos and apathy. So, I’ll share how I’ve blended my favorite parts of Building Thinking Classrooms and the 5 Practices to create a process that leads to engaged students making powerful insights.

Bio: Robert Kaplinsky has been an educator since 2003 as a classroom teacher, teacher specialist for Downey Unified School District, instructor for the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and presenter at conferences around the world.
