Come and learn practical strategies to empower students in mathematics class. Over time, students learn to feel powerless in their capabilities and as a result lack the confidence to persist in challenging tasks - unless they are made to practice these skills. Teachers will participate in math activities designed to promote self-awareness and meta-cognition in student learning. The strategies presented move passive students who are dependent on their teacher, to actively engaged students who embrace challenging tasks, applying critical thinking and problem solving. We will model how to build a safe, collaborative community where this transformation can take place.
