Participants heard from Dawne Coker, Janna Sells, Juliette Kuhn, Allison McCulloch, Deborah Pearl, Jonee Wilson, Valerie Faulkner, Ebony Jason, and Matthew Owens
After the presentations, participants were able to share ideas in the breakout rooms.
Here are a few of the comments from participants:
Loved it. Learned a lot about virtual learning and things that I could use in my classroom. I wanted to see how other teachers set up expectations as well as other tools that I could use, and I got that from this video.
Another great session! It was good to hear how someone can implement Number Talks with online instruction. Also hearing ideas/ resources from peers from different parts of the state was helpful as well.
I enjoyed the opportunity to listen, converse and troubleshoot ideas with other math educators.
I love how we are able to share so many resources and classroom management suggestions with each other! I have many ideas that I'm able to take with me going into this school year.
NCCTM Statement on Equitable Access to Quality Mathematics Instruction
Students need to experience mathematics in ways that allow them to be successful and that give them the power to change the world. This experience needs to be delivered with both excellence and equality while resonating with the lives of Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, and all marginalized peoples. Racism cannot be tolerated, and we as teachers must be vigilant that we do not tolerate nor contribute to racism, bias, hate, or violence in our classrooms.
