We'll examine how to amplify every student's voice in a classroom to create more equitable participation. The 5 practices for productive mathematical discussion include: anticipating, monitoring, selecting, sequencing, and connecting. Using Desmos' Snapshots tool, you can develop a more robust understanding of how to infuse these 5 practices into any lesson.

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).
Webinar hosting presenter Allison Krasnow
Throughout my career, I have become increasingly focused on the intersection between math and equity. After spending 5 years at the district office overseeing our district's Instructional Technology program, I returned to the classroom last year to more deeply explore this synergy. I am constantly thinking about how to give voice and agency to every single student I teach. This is my 21st year in public school education and I currently teach 8th grade in Berkeley, CA. I am a Desmos Fellow, a Math for America Master Teacher and am Nationally Board Certified.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Using Desmos' Snapshots Tool to Deepen Equitable Classroom Discourse
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.
