Description: How do we encourage mathematical identity, curiosity, and community in our classrooms (virtual or physical)? How do we support our students’ growth as young mathematicians without wearing ourselves thin? Together we will grapple with these questions and engage in activities to promote student identity and community. All activities and strategies presented can be easily incorporated into your virtual or physical classroom. This session is intended for all middle school teachers with specific examples of activities from 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade curriculums.
- This is a 2 part workshop, please only register if you can attend both parts.
- This is a two-part series focused on Middle School Mathematics. $50 stipends will only be provided to the first 20 teachers from Arizona school districts who participate in both sessions (March 13 and April 17th). Please only register if you can attend both sessions, and sessions will be capped at 70 participants.
- In addition to professional development certificates (9 hours), participants will receive the stipend due to the generosity of Lee and Arthur Herbst. We have found that teachers working in the US on particular types of visas are required to complete additional forms and/or may not be able to receive the stipend. We welcome their participation, even if they may be unable to receive the stipend.
