Taking Action to Ensure Mathematics Works for Each and Every Student
New content standards may improve overall student achievement but are unlikely to reduce existing learning differentials. To ensure that mathematics works for each and every student, program improvement efforts must address the six principles outlined in NCTM's Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical
Success for All. This presentation will provide an overview of the six principles and outline the actions needed to overcome the obstacles that have traditionally stood in the way of making mathematics work for students.

Using Formative Assessment to Inspire Student Learning!
In this inspirational session, we will examine how to use a formative assessment process effectively as part of our daily mathematics lesson design, as part of independent student practice (aka homework), and as part of our response to end-of-unit assessments. We will also closely examine the impact of those assessment results on our instruction for the next unit of study. Indeed, we are challenged to "know thy assessment impact" on each and every child!

Using Identity and Agency to Frame Access and Equity Principle
This session will use vignettes and the voices of students, teachers, and other school personnel to highlight the Access and Equity Principle. Specifically, the session will use ideas of
identity and agency as a framework for discussing the obstacles to implementing this Principle and ways to overcome these obstacles as described in Principles to Actions. This session will conclude with a discussion of teaching practices that cultivate identity and agency to support Access and Equity.
