Taren Long - Taking Risks for Mathematical Rewards

Join educator Taren Long to learn about strategies that can be used to help math students make sense of problems and strengthen their number sense. These strategies could be used as warm-ups, during transitions, as part of virtual/in-person discussions, or as a lesson. Taren will share and discuss video clips of her students engaging with visual patterns, estimations, and three act math tasks. She will give some tips for how to structure productive conversations with your students, and show some resources that are available to help students organize their thinking while completing these activities.

LaMar Queen - Use STEM Music to Excite and Empower Learners

Music can effectively lower anxiety, promote deep student discourse, empower students, and create an exciting learning environment. A classroom that incorporates music taps into student emotions, lowers walls that inhibit learning and is culturally responsive. Join Music Notes cofounder and math teacher, Mr. LaMar "Mr. Q-U-E" Queen," as he explores these findings and discusses strategies for introducing music into the STEM classroom.

Jess Kesler - Interdisciplinary Learning: Making Connections

Traditional schools’ schedules often present singular subjects in isolation of one another without offering students an opportunity to make connections or tackle larger complex problems. Yet, this system of teaching and learning is not parallel to the workforce students are entering. The 2018 Job Outlook Survey reported under 50% of employers believe that recent college graduates are prepared for the workforce. Interdisciplinary Learning provides the environment and tools to provide students with a robust learning experience that models most workplaces.

Join educator Jess Kesler as she explores the benefits of interdisciplinary learning. By participating, you will: Discover benefits of Interdisciplinary Learning and make connections to the workforce. Explore a case study of a student using interdisciplinary learning tools in order to solve complex problems. And receive and use TGR provided resources to plan an interdisciplinary approach to learning
