SUMMARY:Virtual PD: Academic Safety: Promoting Student Self Worth & Representation in Mathematics
DESCRIPTION:\n\nGeoff Krall will present Academic Safety: Promoting Self Worth & Re
presentation in Mathematics.\n\n\nPresentation Description:\nAcademic safet
y has perhaps never been as crucial as it is in this moment. How do student
s view themselves, each other, and the very discipline of mathematics? Acad
emic safety encompasses the social and emotional safety of the student as w
ell as the studentâ€™s perception of his or her own mathematical ability. In
this session, we will learn about the concept of academic safety through ha
nds-on experiences, data, and discussion. Special attention will be paid to
strategies that create an environment of active caring, a state of student
-teacher relationships that demonstrate to each and every student they are
an invaluable asset to the classroom and the mathematics community.\n\n\nAb
out the Presenters:\nGeoff Krall is an experienced educator, blogger, autho
r, speaker, professional developer and mathematician. He taught math in Tex
as for eight years before moving to Colorado to obtain a masters degree. He
then joined the New Tech Network of schools as a math coach, delivering co
aching, training, and professional development to teachers across the count
ry. While there he pioneered Problem-Based Learning as the primary mode of
instruction at NTN schools, training hundreds of teachers and dozens of col
leagues along the way. His first book, Necessary Conditions: Teaching Secon
dary Math with Academic Safety, Quality Tasks, and Effective Facilitation w
as published in 2018 and is currently available from Stenhouse Publishers.
He writes about math and education generally at emergentmath.com. Geoff liv
es in the foothills of Fort Collins, CO with his wife, two kids, three cats
