Saturday, April 16, 2016: 8:00 AM-9:00 AM
3003 (Moscone)


Lead Speaker:
Tracy Johnston Zager

We'll analyze transcripts, problems, and student work from different classes to develop powerful strategies to teach relational thinking. Attendees who stay for part II will contextualize and apply ideas further in grade-level bands.
