*Developing Mathematics Learners and Doers

Generic Event Image
Description:

Developing Mathematics Learners and Doers 
Feb. 5, 2020; 9 am - 3 pm at FEA
Presenter: Dorian Giorgio, Ph.D., FEA Consultant
Fee: $149
Students have become comfortable in following procedures and waiting out teachers during math instruction. But math education today stresses the need for students to become doers of math, requiring teachers to do more than simply leading students to the right answer. Research shows that students need to become engaged in productive struggle and mathematical discourse during lessons, while stressing that we are not learning math but are learning how to think like mathematicians. Providing lessons that offer these opportunities is a new focus for math instruction, but teachers are often frustrated when trying to plan lessons that offer these opportunities. This workshop will offer a lesson design that is structured to include productive struggle and maximize students in learning.

Disciplining Black Boys: Strategies for Disrupting the School to Prison Pipeline
Feb. 4, 2020; 9 am - 12 pm at FEA
Presenter: Robin Harden Daniels, Ed.D, FEA Consultant
Fee: $75
Since 1968, the US Department of Education has maintained a Civil Rights Database. This database documents vital school activities that includes disaggregated information on the rate and outcomes of disciplinary infractions. This data comes from school districts across the nation. It provides a clear pattern which confirms that Black and Latino students and students with special needs receive more severe and more frequent discipline than white peers who commit the same offenses.
This half day workshop explores the "whys?" behind this damaging phenomena and then transitions to a discussion on research-based and practitioner-confirmed alternative strategies to managing disciplinary infractions.
