Street Data from Implementing Building Thinking Classrooms in Middle School

About This Webinar

This is a story of a coach and a teacher moving from playing with non-curricular tasks last spring to implementing the BTC framework regularly with curricular tasks this year. Our journey is not over, but our street data are showing a powerful shift toward a thinking classroom. As students begin to view each other as sources of knowledge, we are seeing transformations in the role of the teacher and in the mathematics identities of students. I will share one teacher's process, as well as resources she has developed along the way. You will have the opportunity to analyze student reflections and join us in crafting next steps.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Street Data from Implementing Building Thinking Classrooms in Middle School
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.
