NO RECORDING AVAILABLE.

Social/emotional learning seems to be on the top of the priority list for school districts today. People speak of resilience, but we know that Emerging Bilinguals are some of the most resilient children in our schools. They don't need to be taught to be resilient; what they need is hope. Hope is the cognition necessary to rise above adversity. And it can be taught! This session will focus on the Science of Hope as the pathway to students' positive well-being.

Culturally Sustaining Mathematics Teaching

Virtual ONLY

Odalis Amparo

K-5 Instructional Mathematics Coach

Holyoke Public Schools, Holyoke, MA

NO RECORDING AVAILABLE.

Participants will explore how culturally responsive mathematics teaching is about inviting all students into meaningful mathematical experiences. Participants will examine ways of providing students with the opportunity to relate the learning of mathematics to their cultural frames of reference (i.e., background knowledge, native language) which helps develop their cultural identities and perceptions of themselves as capable learners of mathematics. Developing students' proficiency with important mathematical concepts, relationships, and skills will be the focus, with an emphasis on discourse and community-building.
