WI-AMTE and WMC are excited to be offering a book study of Catalyzing Change in High School Mathematics. Catalyzing Change is a book written to “identify and address critical challenges in high school mathematics to ensure that each and every student has the mathematical experiences necessary for his or her future personal and professional success.” We invite high school teachers as well as middle school, coaches, administrators, and college and university instructors to take part in the discussion of the text and its implications with topics including: broadening the purposes for teaching high school mathematics beyond a focus on college and career readiness; dismantling structural obstacles that stand in the way of mathematics working for each and every student; implementing equitable instructional practices; identifying Essential Concepts that all high school students should learn and understand at a deep level; and organizing the high school curriculum around these Essential Concepts in order to support students' future personal and professional goals. Teachers can sign up as individuals or as a faculty group from a school. Each participant will receive an ebook copy of Catalyzing Change.
The meetings will be Tuesdays in October (10-2, 10-9, 10-16, 10-23) from 4-5 p.m.
There will be a charge of $20 to help fund the texts. If you have questions, please e-mail Matt Chedister at firstname.lastname@example.org.
