388- Why “Getting Real” Requires Being “Radical” in High-Stakes Education

Friday, April 11, 2014: 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
Great Hall A/D (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Rochelle Gutiérrez

Teachers who can't skillfully negotiate the politics of language, racism, & testing can't adequately support their students. I will share examples of how all mathematics teaching is political, how teachers can use creative insubordination to be effective advocates for students & enable them to develop robust mathematical understanding & identities.
