Teaching through equity based teaching practices (Aguirre, et al, 2013) allows students to be active participants in their own learning. In this course we will engage in mathematics as we develop an awareness of these practices and explore how our identities, classroom structures, and the type of tasks we choose affect student engagement and achievement.
Capitalizing on participants' experiences and connections to current research from the field, we will have the opportunities to:
  • Come to a deeper understanding of our own "math identity" and how that impacts our learning and teaching
  • Develop new images and deepen our understanding of what it means to learn and do mathematics in today's classrooms
  • Appreciate that our students hold various identities and the variety of ways that the identities impact learning
  • Bring awareness to issues of equity and social justice, then bring hope

    43. Student Engagement: Learning is Not a Spectator Sport

    Program: Office of School Improvement - CTLE Approved Sponsor

    Audience: Classroom teachers, teacher leaders

    Dates: 5/19/2020 to 5/20/2020

    What does it mean for learners to be truly engaged? Compliance? Answering teacher directed questions when called on? Following Directions? Or does it run deeper than that?
    Educators in these professional learning sessions will explore answers to those questions by:
  • assessing their current practices and developing a rationale for what they believe and value about student engagement
  • developing plans that build a culture/environment that supports positive student engagement
  • sharing their learning with others in this session about specific engagement strategies and protocols
  • designing lessons that embed engagement strategies including some that utilize instructional technology
    A variety of instructional technology and non-instructional technology driven engagement strategies will be modeled, analyzed and used by teachers for their planning of upcoming lessons and/or units of study. Participants will have time to plan a lesson or unit that embeds standards-aligned student engagement strategies. These plans will be implemented and student work samples brought back for analysis on day three.
