Bringing Parents to the Table

February 6, 2018 at 09:00:00 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

A major concern of mine is that all the work we are doing in our K-12 classrooms can only go far if we don’t build up the environment around our students. While we know that many parents project the “I suck at math” or “I’m not a math person” persona, there isn’t enough being done about it. In the short time we have together, my goal is to build some empathy and talk about possible steps towards bringing more parents to the table.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Bringing Parents to the Table
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
