Do your students struggle to share their thinking for fear of being wrong? With the second video in our series designed to start conversations that energize, engage, and empower teachers ahead of the 2019 Annual Conference, we invite you to watch Dr. Amanda Jansen’s video on rough draft talk. How do you make students feel safe to share their “rough draft” thinking while they are figuring things out? Follow @cctmath on Twitter and join other Colorado teachers of mathematics at 5 pm on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday to engage in a slow chat with the hashtag #CCTM19.
