## What do you mean by cognitively guided instruction?

Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI) is a student-centered approach to teaching math. It starts with what your students already know and builds on their natural number sense and intuitive approaches to problem solving.

**What is a CGI problem?**

Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI) CGI is a way of teaching mathematics that looks at how children solve problems on their own as a starting point.

**What does CGI stand for in math?**

Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI) professional development enhances teachers’ abilities to teach math with understanding through a focus on students’ mathematical thinking.

### What are the disadvantages of cognitively guided instruction?

Disadvantage of (CGI) is that the learning process falls on the student which can be difficult.

**Who created cognitive guided instruction?**

Carpenter, T. P., Fennema, E., Franke, M., Levi, L. & Empson, S. B. (2000). Cognitively Guided Instruction: A Research-Based Teacher Professional Development Program for Mathematics.

**What are examples of cognitive learning?**

Examples of cognitive learning strategies include:

- Asking students to reflect on their experience.
- Helping students find new solutions to problems.
- Encouraging discussions about what is being taught.
- Helping students explore and understand how ideas are connected.
- Asking students to justify and explain their thinking.

#### How do you develop cognitive learning?

Cognitive Learning Strategies Include:

- Encouraging active discussion about what is being taught.
- Guiding students to explore and understand how ideas are connected.
- Ensuring students are able to justify and explain their thinking.
- Using visuals and learning tools to improve students’ understanding and recall.

**What are the advantages and disadvantages of cognitive learning?**

The cognitive approach has a key advantage of practical and useful applications, but a key disadvantage of not being able to observe the supposed causes of behaviour. The scientific nature of the approach is one worthy of discussing as it can be both a strength and weakness, as is its reductionist nature.

**What is CGI instruction?**

What is CGI? Cognitively Guided instruction, or CGI, is based upon 30 years of research. It’s a framework that helps teachers to understand how children’s mathematical ideas develop, and provides an opportunity to build on the child’s own thinking and understanding.

## How do you scaffold a lesson?

15 Ways to Scaffold Learning

- Give mini-lessons.
- Model/demonstrate.
- Describe concepts in multiple ways.
- Break large tasks into smaller steps.
- Slow Down.
- Scaffold learning by incorporating visual aids.
- Front-load concept-specific vocabulary.
- Activate prior knowledge.

**What are the 4 cognitive strategies?**

Cognitive strategies are one type of learning strategy that learners use in order to learn more successfully. These include repetition, organising new language, summarising meaning, guessing meaning from context, using imagery for memorisation.

**What are dot talks?**

What are Dot Talks? Dot talks are short, routine class meetings that help children build number sense, articulate their thinking, and appreciate different perspectives. They should be scheduled as a regular part of your day and flexible enough to expand with the children in your class or group.
