I am excited to share that I will be one of the presenters for the 2020 Building Math Minds Virtual Summit!
THE POWER OF CHOICE IN MATHEMATICS
Choice can be a powerful motivator, but students have few opportunities to exercise the power of choice during a typical school day. In this session, we’ll explore three ways to build choice into our math lessons so that we can motivate and empower students. First, we’ll examine choice in terms of which tasks students engage with. Then, we’ll examine choice in the way students approach tasks. Finally, we’ll examine choice in terms of the ways in how students evidence their brilliance.

I’m an elementary Special Ed teacher. Just watched your presentation for the Building Math Minds Virtual Summit. It was so well done. Lots of great ideas presented in a most organized manner. Can’t wait to try them.
Thanks for the kind words, Hester! Glad you found it useful. 🙂
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, the Evidencece Brilliance discussion. As I learn new technologies I have been wrapping my brain around choice menus in the classroom and I cannot wait to make my Evidence Brilliance Menu! So awesome. Thank you.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Nicole. I am going to make a video on what this might look like virtually as well! Let me know how it goes. 🙂
Thank you so much for sharing at Build Math Minds. I am excited to share with students.

Just listened to your Power of Choice Presentation ….fabulous!!!! Lots of great ideas that I can take back to school!
Thanks for the feedback, Joy! Hope your year starts off great!
I really enjoyed this. I have lots of ideas to use in my three grade split. I love the ideas to turn repetitive activities into rich math tasks. Thank you!
I just watched your math summit presentation. It was wonderful with lots of ideas I plan on using this fall with teacher. I would like to get a copy of the slides as you mentioned but this site isn’t allowing me to put in my email right now.
I enjoyed your presentation and got some more ideas for how to incorporate choice in math class. Thanks!
