Going International!

I’m excited to join the British Columbia Association of Math Teachers for their conference today, October 21, 2016! And I’m honored to present a session tackling improving student collaboration title “How are you smart in math?” This post will serve as a home for the slide deck we used to guide our time, and a few additional links and resources!

Session Description

How do we move from the ‘divide and conquer’ mentality of student collaboration to a place where student groups genuinely work together to create shared knowledge? One key lies in the way we view our students and how they view each other. During this session, we’ll build our vocabulary about the vital math abilities that are so powerful for students as they investigate and grapple with tough problems so we can dramatically shrink the deficit-based thinking of students and teachers alike.
