Spotlight on NCTM Annual Sessions

NCTM 2016 and Purpose

The NCTM 2016 Annual was full of great ideas, resources, sessions, and experiences. I felt a common theme throughout many of the sessions I attended: PURPOSE. Because there is a lot to process. I know your time is precious, so I blogged about it here.

Creating Accessible Learning Environments

As usual, the 2016 NCTM annual meeting & exposition was a whirlwind of excitement, ideas, and inspiration. Bright and early on Thursday morning, I led my first NCTM session about teaching math to students with disabilities called Students with Disabilities CAN Do Math. Christine Roberts took these amazing doodle notes during our presentation!

Our presentation was mainly about creating access for students with disabilities in math class. Whether this was on my mind (as it usually is) or not, other sessions I attended also seemed to have creating access for students (of all kinds) in math class as a focus.

(PS – Dan corrected me. This was not his quote, but a session participant!)

Great Blogging Action

“Teaching on a normal day is balance.”

With all the reading and video catch-up I suspect many of us are doing post-NCSM/NCTM, I’ll keep this short.

I’ve been watching across social medias as different states begin their testing days for various disciplines. While I miss pretty much every aspect of classroom teaching, I cannot confess to missing reading instructions verbatim and scrutinizing students grouped by grade and name as they sit exams all sharpened pencils and big eyes eyes pleading for better spare calculators than the ones I had.

To everyone living through the experience now, I wish you the best of luck and recommend the latest blogpost by José Vilson who reminds us all of the connections and true cadence of the profession we chose that’s more fun than fun.
