Catalyzing Change in Early Childhood and Elementary Mathematics and Catalyzing Change in Middle School Mathematics are a part of the Catalyzing Change Series. This series is a collection of three books intended to initiate the critical conversations on policies, practices, and issues impacting mathematics education. These books also address why the status quo is unacceptable, what collective actions should be taken to change it, and how to make a difference!
Join WI-AMTE and WMC for an in-depth discussion of the text from NCTM, including the implications of the texts for teaching in the state of Wisconsin and the development of tasks that meet the demands of the ideas presented in the books. This book study is designed for all stakeholders in Early Childhood, Elementary and Middle School Mathematics educations: Teachers, Coaches, Administrators, and Math Instructors at the University and College level. Teachers can sign up as individuals or as faculty groups from their schools.
The discussion will be held virtually over four weeks in October: Thursday, October 1st, 8th, 15th, and 22nd from 4pm-5pm.
Discussions will be held as whole groups and in small grade level groups. Joining us to facilitate the discussion will be Erin Edgington, Cynthia Cuellar Rodriguez, Lynn Schaal, and others.
The cost to participate in the book study is $30 and includes one of the Catalyzing Change Elementary or Middle School e-book of your choice. Already have a book, then the cost to participate is $5. Undergraduate students can register for free and receive an e-book.
