Taking Action: Bringing the Effective Teaching Practices to Life in your Classroom Webinar Series
Meeting the demands of online and hybrid learning so that students have access to meaningful discourse and high-quality tasks is one of the major challenges for instruction in the high school mathematics classroom. In this session, Anthony and Fred will provide strategies using technology including breakout rooms, collaborative documents, and Desmos aimed at increasing student discourse and providing opportunities for critical thinking and problem solving. Anthony and Fred will answer questions and provide examples of effective practices for teaching mathematics.

<p> <b> <i>Taking Action: Bringing the Effective Teaching Practices to Life in your Classroom</i> Webinar Series </b> </p> <p> The authors of the Taking Action series developed the Mathematics Teaching Framework to illustrate how the eight teaching practices form a coherent framework for equitable and ambitious teaching of mathematics. This session uses the Mathematics Teaching Framework to explore the intersections between authority, mathematical identity, and mathematical agency with the teaching practices. Specifically, this session connects the Mathematics Teaching Framework with research that examines equitable teaching as intentional acts that teachers pursue to view each and every student as capable of doing mathematics. </p>
