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.
