Ross Taylor/Glenn Gilbert Speaker Series: Why Teach Mathematics? How Do We Help Teachers Convince Students that Learning Mathematics is Important?
Much of the focus on what students should know in mathematics has been on college and career readiness. NCTM's Catalyzing Change suggests there is more to mathematics. What does this mean for teachers? Is knowing what factors are and how they connect to the roots of a function more important than being able to factor? Let's consider how we can help teachers make choices that will engage all students in the mathematics in meaningful ways

Facilitating Purposeful, Productive, and Powerful Discourse in Secondary Classrooms
We focus on meaningful mathematical discourse through the exploration of two cases of teaching. Particular research-based moves for facilitating rich discourse and the kinds of tasks that foster meaningful discourse will be considered. We argue that discourse is a tool for: formative assessment, creating opportunities for all students to learn mathematics content, supporting students to gain facility with increasingly precise mathematical communication, and positioning students as people who are capable of making sense of mathematics.

Math-Positive Mindsets: How to Leverage Family Engagement to Extend Growth Mindsets Beyond Classroom Walls
Elementary teachers are tasked with building students' math-positive mindsets but are sometimes undermined by parents' fixed attitudes. Learn how to grow familial mindsets by leveraging traditional family engagement structures--parent conferences, school newsletters, and family math night--as well as innovative approaches like take-home math literacy bags.

Coaches play an important role in our educational system - their greatest role is in transforming adult behavior. Most coaches are former teachers, who have studied pedagogy their entire lives, but have received little to no training on adult learning theory. If we want to transform adult behavior, we have to know about how adults learn. Come to this session where we will get andragogical and focus on US, adults.

Putting Representation at the Center: Students Acting as Mathematicians
Through making connections between visual representations and mathematical abstractions, elementary students dig below the surface of computation to construct mathematical explanations.  By interacting with each other's representations, they grapple with foundational ideas about the properties and behaviors of the operations. Video clips, including examples from urban public schools, illustrate depth and rigor of student thinking, how teachers focus on conceptual understanding of the operations, and how the brilliance of all students is respected and supported.

Why Are There Still Elephants in the (Mathematics Class-) Room?
Why are there still elephants in the mathematics classroom? These "elephants" often present roadblocks to students' engagement and learning. Such elephants might include the following: 1. Inaccurate and unfounded conceptions about girls learning mathematics 2. Inaccurate and unfounded conceptions about students of color learning mathematics 3. Missed opportunities for secondary students to learn from hands-on experience 4. Reliance on memorization and procedures to "do" mathematics 5. Using "let me show you how to do it" as a primary method of teaching The presenter will integrate experiences, research, and classroom video to examine related points and provide challenges for changing the narrative to release the elephants from the mathematics classroom.

This session explores how rational number probe tasks can be implemented in an interview format to support teachers in prioritizing learning and promote teaching questioning skills and the student-teacher learning relationship.

Our Professional Development System is Broken, and How to Fix It
Traditional professional development systems often run contradictory to research-based best practices, leading to miscommunication and a general lack of buy-in.  Most importantly, they tend to leave out our most valuable asset: teacher leaders.  Join us as we study a large, urban district which has utilized the Mathematics Teacher Leader Institute over the past three years to transform the way its elementary schools engage in professional learning that is content-focused, sustained, and meaningful.

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics formed three writing teams at the early childhood/elementary, middle school, and high school levels with the intent to initiate the critical conversations needed to address issues in school mathematics. The Catalyzing Change series focuses on recommendations in school mathematics with the purpose of initiating critical conversations for improving mathematics teaching and learning in school mathematics. This session will focus on initiating critical conversations based on the key recommendations from the Catalyzing Change series.

It falls upon educators to be activist on behalf of our children. The system that we know and are comfortable in does not work for our children.   The exclusive culture is deeply ingrained and inequities are unrecognizable.  Let's spend some time together reflecting on how we can influence this culture.  How can we be a catalyst for a change of hearts and minds?

Productive Strategies to Support Students' Engagement in Productive Struggle
Engaging students in tasks that involve reasoning and problem solving is essential for developing the conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and productive habits of mind they need for their futures. Yet, these tasks are the most difficult to implement effectively. Learn strategies to increase students' willingness to engage in challenging tasks and to promote their positive mathematics identities, along with common pitfalls to avoid. We'll also discuss how you can support teachers in using these strategies.

Starting with Me: Transforming Mathematics Education from the Inside Out
How might we transform the organizations we serve by first transforming ourselves? In order to lead mathematics education forward, we must understand ourselves as leaders and learners, including our strengths, preferences, blind spots, and limitations. Without attending to these aspects of our leadership personas, we are likely to limit or undermine our professional effectiveness. In this session, we'll explore how to effectively transform ourselves in order to transform mathematics education in our spheres of influence.

Hope for Teachers: Developing Emergent Bilinguals' Language in Mathematics Class
This motivating, research-based session reveals how you can easily develop emergent bilinguals' language in mathematics. There is a myth that mathematics is straightforward for emergent bilinguals because it is a universal language and yet these students are struggling (Author, 2018). Committed educators understand that emergent bilinguals will not improve unless we develop students' language in every subject. Attend this event to obtain foolproof strategies that your teachers can implement immediately to develop mathematical language.

We know we want the discourse to increase in classrooms.  We may even have a vision for what we want by year end.  But does your vision leak throughout the year? Do you start strong, but somewhere along the way lose focus, determination, or tools to meet your original goal?  Do teachers know and understand the vision and feel they have the road map to achieve the desired result?  In this workshop, we will engage in effective roadmaps that allow schools and leaders to go from vision to reality.  We will learn from and use effective research-based rubrics, continuums, PD/coaching cycles,  and backwards design mapping to keep visions from leaking and instead lead teachers and students to desired outcomes.

Re-envisioning Coaching Frameworks: How Ten-Minute Reasoning Routines and Comparative Teaching Can Be Used to Improve Teacher Practice
A primary goal of coaching is to develop high-leverage teaching practices. To do this, coaches need to have sustained time coaching a teacher, which is often not the reality. To remedy this dilemma, we have been experimenting with a new coaching model called comparative teaching. In this session, we will explore how we used this model and ten-minute reasoning routines to dramatically improve teacher practice. A video case study will be used to highlight our learning.
