Math is...Student Centered! (Sponsored by McGraw Hill)
Presented by Cheryl Tobey
Students develop a deeper understanding of mathematics by explaining their thinking and reflecting on their learning. Let’s take a look at some example math probes to uncover student ideas and powerful yet easy-to-implement reflection routines and talk about the keys to implementing a student-centered formative assessment classroom.
Jun 01, 2022 07:00 PM : Political Conocimiento in Contemporary Times: Honoring LGBTQ+ Youth in Our Math Classrooms
CRT (critical race theory) bans, antitrans sports bills, and “don’t say gay” laws are being introduced in state legislatures across the country in record numbers. These legislative attacks have had a significant impact on the mental health of the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) students, families, and teachers in our PK–12 schools. How does mathematics fit into this conversation, and what can we—as math teachers, teacher educators, math coaches, school administrators, and leaders of school districts and professional organizations—do to honor the brilliance of the LGBTQ+ youth, especially LGBTQ+ identified BIPOC youth, in our mathematics classes? In this session, you’ll learn this and more, gaining an understanding of, as Dr. Gutiérrez writes when speaking of political conocimiento, “how politics permeates everything we do.”
