I always try to make it easy for people to find both my slides and handouts when I give a talk – so Here’s my powerpoint presentation from my talk entitled, “Change the Classroom, Not the Students: Creating Equity with PBL” which I’m giving today at the NCTM Annual Conference in New Orleans – great to be here. I also have 2 handouts which include my framework for a relational PBL class and the results of my qualitative dissertation – I’d love to hear any comments and questions and start a discussion with PBL teachers. (I do not include the videos I used in this public version of the powerpoint, sorry)
There are actually a few talks here today that I would highly recommend and seem to be related to this topic of creating a classroom that allows for discussion and interaction at the level of creating equity. One of them is on Friday, and is entitled “The Hidden Message: Micromessaging and Mathematics” and it seems to be about managing the way we talk to each other in the classroom and making sure all voices are heard. I’m definitely going to that one! Unfortunately, Jo Boaler is presenting at the exact same time as me! I don’t know if I should take that as a compliment that I was put as the same time or not
Well, hope everyone has a great time! Enjoy the conference!
