On October 19, Stevenson teacher candidates and graduates participated in the Maryland Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTE) Conference at Dundalk High School. This year's theme was "It's Time to Act! Using Research-Informed Practices to Meet the Needs of Every Learner." The conference kicked off with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics president, Dr. Robert Berry's presentation, Connecting Social-Emotional Learning to Position Students as Mathematically Competent.
Five Stevenson University alumni presented engaging and lively sessions that motivated Maryland Mathematics teachers to support their students learning:
- Alli Culp '18 and Sally Dawson '18 presented Planning for and Facilitating Mathematical Discourse
- Lauren Speiser '15 presented Totally Techie Teacher
- Zac Stavish, '13, co-presented with Tara Wilson (Howard County Public Schools), Using Desmos to Enhance Mathematics Instruction
- Alix Weyforth, '13, co-presented with Greta Richard (Howard County Public Schools), Engaging Tasks and Multiple Representations=Access
In addition, Dr. Beth Kobett, Associate Professor in the School of Education, presented Strategic Lesson Planning is Your Blueprint for Success!
