Math Teacher Circles – Creating a Student-led Learning Environment

April 6, 2024

Progressive education certainly consists of many buzzwords: Building community, modeling, project-based learning, and equitable grading. What do these practices all have in common? If you guessed “fostering a student-led learning environment” after reading the title of this session, then you know what this session is all about. We will hear student testimonials of what student-led learning is and see examples of student-led learning in practice. You will experience student-led learning first hand as a learner in this session and get ideas on how to adopt research-based strategies and teacher-vetted techniques to develop an implementation plan customized to your own classroom and students’ needs. We look forward to seeing you “lead” as learners in this session!
