What a week! Start with an all day LessonSketch meeting where we were modifying our modules and considering how we will share them (more to come on that…). Next I had the pleasure to present with Anne Marie Marshall of Lehman College and Rebecca Nance of the University of Mississippi in multiple forums (a poster session and a manuscript review session) a teaching math methods for social justice module that we taught in the fall. The module and what we were able to do with it was well received and our hope is to disseminate more results in the fall of 2016. The next day I was able to present with my colleagues from across the country our ideas about Access, Agency, and Allies and how the concentration on those facets influences our work with mathematics teachers. The final session was presenting with Stephanie Casey from Eastern Michigan University on noticing (THE buzz word of the conference) within the LessonSketch environment. Looks like my AMTE 2016 experience came full circle.
