    Talk 16: Liisa Suurtamm and Christine Lebeau

    Summary : With funding from a TLLP grant, a team of Mathematics and Special Education teachers have worked together throughout this year to better understand how to support our students with learning disabilities. Our team met monthly, developed learning profiles, collected data, analyzed psychological assessments, visited mathematics classrooms, and explored various supports for students. At this session, we will share our journey as these teachers worked to better understand the strengths and needs of these students in order to put in place student specific accommodations. By using the expertise of all the educators in the group, both the content knowledge of the Mathematics teachers and the Special Education teachers knowledge of exceptionalities and various accommodations, we all were able to grow in our knowledge of how to support these learners.

    Talk 12: Alex Overwijk and Jimmy Pai

    Participants will engage in math tasks in an environment that is conducive to thinking. Based on research by Dr. Liljedahl, these tasks will enable us to dig deep into the components of a thinking classroom. Collectively, let us learn to manage flow and let go to create a student-centered experience.

    Recorded January 2020. Alex teaches at Glebe Collegiate Institute and Jimmy teaches at Colonel By secondary school (both with the Ottawa Carlton DSB). Alex Tweets at @AlexOverwijk and Jimmy at @PaiMath. Mentioned in the podcast was the work on thinking classrooms from Peter Liljedahl (@pgliljedahl http://www.peterliljedahl.com/) and the 14 elements are summarized visually in this sketchnote from @Wheeler_Laura.

    Talk 11: Kaneka Turner

    Do you remember the first day? It was filled with excitement and optimism as you considered the newness of it all. This was followed by anxiety and caution as you considered uncertainty of it all. This description aligns to both students and teachers, yet both are asked to be "all in" from the very first day. Curriculum structures that offer routine and rigour support both teachers and students in their efforts to be "all in" . This session will explore characteristics of the lesson launch and warm up featured in Illustrative Mathematics curriculum and how these structures promote agency and equity in the math classroom.
    Recorded December 2019. Kaneka works at Illustrative Mathematics and she Tweets at @KanekaTurner
