Designing Curriculum That Treats Students as Sense-Makers

August 21, 2018 at 09:00:00 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

How do we design high-quality curriculum that supports students and their teachers seeing themselves as sense-makers, not mistake-makers? David will share effective teaching practices embedded in curriculum that allow all students to make mathematical connections. We will also discuss as a group how to embed features that are educative for teachers, so that the use of curriculum can lead to both student and teacher learning.

Another critical goal of our curriculum work is to develop curriculum that explicitly aims to be responsive to student ideas and which includes instructional supports that give all students access to the mathematics through supporting students and teachers in having authentic mathematical discussions. In the presentation, participants will learn how those supports have been embedded within our curriculum through the use of instructional routines.

Our assumption in the design of our curriculum work: It is possible for all students to learn, given appropriate support.

I am a mother, wife and math teacher. I currently teach at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA and my favorite class to teach is statistics! This is my 27th year of teaching and I am a Desmos fellow and Desmos certified presenter. @mathteacher24 is my twitter handle and I blog at mathteacher24.blogspot.com. I have several tech related videos for stat and TI-NSpire at www.youtube.com/mathteacher24. Feel free to ask me questions about National Board Certification (renewed in 2015). I also enjoy singing, reading and staying fit using workouts from Beachbody (P90X3/TurboFire/21DFX).

We are math teachers who share what we've learned, because we don't want our classes to drain the energy from students. Professional development among friends, not just colleagues. Fun! Immediately useful! Interesting!
