New Teacher Presentations

Get answers to pivotal questions and concerns of new and soon-to-be teachers. Here are a few of the presentations you can benefit from:

Common Core: A Teacher’s Catalyst for Change – Session 385
Mona Toncheff, NCSM Regional Director Western Region 1 and PUHSD, Phoenix, AZ, and Timothy D. Kanold, Loyola University, Chicago, IL
Friday, April 11, 12:30 p.m.-1:30 p.m., R03 (Convention Center)     

Early-career teachers (and veterans) will engage in activities contrasting “typical” and “visionary” math instruction using these four practices: student engaged learning, formative assessment, meaningful tasks, and effective grading processes. The challenge of implementing CCSSM is the catalyst for you to make your instruction visionary.

Engaging the Struggling Learner—Technology Can Help! – Session 533
Carolyn Briles, Loudon County Public Schools, Ashburn, VA, and Connie S. Schrock, Emporia State University, Emporia, KS
Friday, April 11, 3:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m., R04 (Convention Center)

Today's students are captivated by video and TV yet remain concrete learners. Technology capitalizes on both of these facts. Learn how to capture student interest with videos and then deepen conceptual understanding with virtual manipulatives. Lessons are aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) and the CCSSM Standards for Mathematical Practice. Keep your students motivated and engaged!

What’s the Problem? Developing Effective Problem Solvers – Session 323
Cory A. Bennett, Idaho State University, Pocatello, ID
Friday, April 11, 9:45 a.m.-11:00 a.m., R08 (Convention Center)

Developing reasoning through problem solving is critical to helping students become proficient mathematicians and creative thinkers with deep conceptual understandings across mathematics. This presentation will focus on strategies to help develop effective problem solvers through hands-on explorations and identify characteristics of rich tasks.
