Designing Curriculum That Treats Students as Sense-Makers

Tue, Aug 21, 2018 · 9:00 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).

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Designing Curriculum That Treats Students as Sense-Makers
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.
