The 2017 Spring Leadership Seminar
What’s Your Message?


March 24, 2017
Marriott Greensboro Airport

Speakers:

  • Gary Martin, individuals from the North Carolina Collaborative for Mathematics Learning (including Holt Wilson),
  • The mathematics consultants from the NC Department of Public Instruction.

The focus was on providing leaders in mathematics education with ways of communicating more effectively the intent and practices of mathematics education in North Carolina to teachers, administrators, parents, elected officials, business leaders, stakeholders, concerned citizens, etc. Specifically, we need to have strong messages of success to share with key stakeholders – in a proactive manner, instead of the reactive manner that many of us have found ourselves in over the past two years. For example, at any given time, we may be asked about the following:

  • Recent mathematics scores from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), including the specific NC scores
  • Parents who are unable to help their children with mathematics homework because the methods of instruction are unfamiliar to them
  • Elected officials who hear more negative comments than positive about mathematics instruction
  • Business leaders concerned with an underprepared workforce
  • Higher education spending resources on remedial mathematics for some students

Spring 2016 Seminar: Gates Wide Open in North Carolina: Working Toward Mathematics for All

Whether we talk about “Mathematics for All” or “No Child Left Behind” or “Every Child Succeeds”, North Carolina mathematics teachers want to help all of their students reach their mathematical potential. But how do we do that? Attendees of the Spring 2016 seminar were challenged to better enable our students mathematically. The primary focus was on work with minority students and English language learners.

Speakers:

  • Mariella Duarte-Valdes, Whitewater Middle School
  • Anthony Fernandes, UNC-Charlotte
  • Alejandra Sorto, Texas State University
  • Lee Stiff, North Carolina State Unversity
