Making Math Class Matter (LA)
Let’s explore quality tasks and thoughtful pedagogy to help make your math class more engaging for all students! Develop the strategies and tools to move your classroom away from the traditional “I do, we do, you do” framework of teaching math toward an experience that more actively engages students in defining their own learning.
We will anchor our workshop with an exploration of key research on engagement, curiosity, and mathematical mindsets. Then, we will outline the key elements of effective math instruction, in line with NCTM’s recent call in Catalyzing Change for students to “experience the wonder, joy and beauty” of mathematics. Lastly, we will work together to build on this research to develop activities and structures for your math classroom, working toward the goal of making math class matter for all students.
This workshop is aimed at upper elementary, middle and high school math teachers and coaches.
