Catalyzing Change Across All Levels: Opportunities and Challenges
The current situation sharpens our view of inconsistencies and inequities that exist within the teaching and learning of mathematics across all grade levels. NCTM’s series of Catalyzing Change publications, including the recently releasedCatalyzing Change in Early Childhood and Elementary Mathematics, andCatalyzing Change in Middle School Mathematics highlight critical issues and provide guidance areas of focus for critical conversations and decision making in this time of significant need and opportunity.
May 27, 2020 07:00 PM : Catalyzing Change: An Overview of the 4 Key Recommendations for Early Childhood and Elementary Mathematics
Join us in this informative webinar as we take a closer look at NCTM’s recently released Catalyzing Change in Early Childhood and Elementary Mathematics. As we launch children on their mathematical journeys, we need to broaden the purposes of learning mathematics, create equitable structures, implement equitable instruction, and develop deep mathematical understanding. We will discuss and provide examples highlighting wonder, joy, and deep learning of mathematics. Special attention will be given to considering how the messages of Catalyzing Change challenge us to dismantle inequitable policies and practices in order to ensure the highest-quality mathematics education for each and every child.
