Turning Adversaries Into Allies: Building Community-Wide Support for Your Initiatives in Mathematics Education
Presented by Mike Flynn
Any initiative in mathematics education, whether classroom-based or state-wide, requires support from stakeholders (students, parents, administrators, school board, etc.) if it is going to be successful. However, building and sustaining that support can be challenging, especially if there are pockets of skeptics actively working against your goals. This session will address these challenges and provide educators and leaders with strategies and resources to help them build momentum in their communities to support meaningful and powerful mathematics education for each and every student.
