Understanding Your Role in the Math Classroom to Help Students Overcome Math Phobia (22 March 22, 12-1p)

Presenter: Dr. Keao Tano, Math Lead Faculty, Culver City High School

Have you ever thought, “Why do we have to learn math?”? “I am just NOT a math person!” Well, our students think this every day! What’s worse, our social environment sends messages that promotes this kind of thinking, including math phobia, leading to a plethora of behavioral and cognitive issues in the classroom that can lead to test anxiety and poor academic achievement. Your role as a teacher becomes less content-focused and the need to be an intrinsic motivator takes precedence. Dr. Tano will talk about what he has learned from his experience in the classroom to combat these issues and help students “want” to learn math. You will gain a better understanding about theories of mindset, intrinsic motivation, cognitive functioning, and how these are all related in creating an equitable environment where all students want to learn math.

We Need to Talk - Critical Conversations (for students) - 12 April 22 (9-11a) - Presenter: Rosemary Wrenn

 

An interactive workshop where you will learn the what, why, and how for engaging in and facilitating critical conversations about race, identity, socio-economic status and other topics we all encounter in our classrooms and daily interactions. Using a framework originated by Glenn Singleton (2015), and informed by scholars in education and social sciences, we will explore concepts of how traditions such as color blindness (Bonilla-Silva, 2014), color muteness (Pollock, 2004) perfection, power, and maintaining the status quo have limited our abilities to acknowledge and discuss important issues, ultimately sowing division and conflict. Throughout the presentation, participants will practice critical conversations with one another in pairs and small groups.

Take these skills into your classrooms, organizations, and daily life. Be open to creating space for courageous conversations; be ready to learn about people whose lived experiences and ways of knowing and being may differ from your own.
