NCSM and NCTM 2021: Minimizing Shame, Productive Struggle, and Fostering Doers of Mathematics
In September of 2021, my colleagues, Ann Monroe and Candies Cook, and I, were to present our work at the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Annual Conference and the annual meeting of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics in Atlanta, GA. Both events were canceled and we were offered the opportunity to share our work virtually. We provided videos(one is embedded below), and created this website as a place to link resources connected to the presentations.
Our presentation in 2019, at the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics was a packed room where many experienced practitioners shared 5 Ways to Promote Productive Struggle and minimize shame which can be found in this resource.
We also presented at the Mathematics Specialist Conference in Oxford, MS around where we shared “The Struggle is Real…Good #CelebrateTheStruggle” and was able to generate even more ideas on how to minimize shame in the mathematics classroom which can be found in this resource.
In addition we have talked about these ideas in three podcast episodes which are embedded below.
