AATM ANNUAL CONFERENCE – SEPTEMBER 16
Keynote Speaker - Grace Kelemanik has more than 30 years of mathematics education experience. A frequent presenter at national conferences, her work focuses on urban education, special populations, and teacher training. She is a former urban high school mathematics teacher and Project Director at Education Development Center. Grace has also worked extensively with new and preservice teachers through the Boston Teacher Residency program.
Most recently, Grace is the coauthor of Routines for Reasoning: Fostering the Mathematical Practices in All Students. She is also coauthor of The Fostering Geometric Thinking Toolkit. She is a mathematics education consultant and professional development provider.
Keynote Title: Teach Every Student to Think Like a Mathematician
Description: Teaching all students to think and reason is perhaps the greatest challenge we face as math educators. The eight standards for mathematical practices found in the Common Core Standards for Mathematics are our best articulation to date of what it means to think (and work!) like a mathematician. This
session will offer a framework for making sense of the mathematical practices, images of what they look in action, and strategies for developing them in all students.
Breakout Sessions — We are planning for up to 60 breakout sessions throughout the day.
These sessions will be lead by national leaders and presenters as well as our colleagues who are practicing teachers and leaders on a wide range of topics.
