Restructuring your Math Block
Our team has teachers from multiple elementary schools in Bettendorf from multiple grades (K-5) and each will be sharing the ways in which they structure their math block. Our focus will be on differentiating math centers, number talks, 3 act tasks, hands on activities/games, and the inclusion of technology.

The Stories Behind the Outputs: Building Student Agency and Identity in the Mathematics Classroom
Description: Students should feel safe to take risks in participating or engaging in mathematics in classroom environments where it is socially acceptable for all students to do so. Students need access to a variety of tools, strategies, equity minded classroom norms, routines, and a mathematical growth mindset learning culture, so students see themselves as doers of mathematics.
In this session, participants will have an opportunity to discuss students’ interview responses to the same questions asked in 2016 and 2019. Additional discussions will center on noticing responses about agency, identity and mathematical thinking. Participants will identify ways to leverage their own strengths/resources as student identity builders to improve classroom, school/building, and district culture to support sustainable high impact engagement, increase student agency and identity, and to frame equitable mathematics teaching. Take away after watching student videos: Think about the students in your school, will they say these things or will they say something different?
