I have the good fortune to attend and speak at the Conference for the Advancement of Mathematics Teaching Conference (CAMT) this week in San Antonio, Texas. Here is a bit more about my sessions and also handouts for each of them.
Formative Assessment Through Student Choice
July 14th 8:15-9:30 Hemisfair Ballroom C3
Providing students with more choice and autonomy in their learning can help to improve their engagement and enjoyment of mathematics. Building choice into tasks can also serve as a way to formatively assess our students’ understanding. In this session, we will explore ways to embed choice into tasks and use their choices as a source of formative assessment to steer our instruction.
Small Steps toward Big Change
July 14th 10:00-11:00 Hemisfair Ballroom C3
In this session we will examine some small pedagogical changes that can make a big impact on our instruction and students’ learning. These changes are rooted in practices teachers commonly employ, but serve to further student engagement and conceptual understanding. The session will be interactive and provide ready to use ideas for the mathematics classroom.
It’s not Always Intuitive: Teaching Mathematics with Multilingual Learners
July 14th 1:00-2:00 Hemisfair Ballroom C3
In this session we’ll discuss some of the key considerations for teaching mathematics with multilingual learners. We will focus on ways to enhance mathematics tasks and conversations to foster discourse and deepen students’ learning.
