I'm really pleased with how this interview with Katrina turned out and how many people have had a chance to read it. I'm looking forward to my next ten years in education.

"There’s lots of evidence that what we think about is what we know later. I want to increase the amount of thinking going on in math class."

I'm teaching a face to face course in the fall which is free for New York City area teachers (and cheap if you are outside of NYC). Check out here: http://math.newvisions.org/blog/algebra-i/algebra-i-microcert-course-being-offered

Hey everyone,

It's been a while since I've been here. I notice a lot of posts that look like they are about nothing to do with Edcamp. I removed a bunch of them and banned some obvious spammers. I'll try and make sure I make it in here at least once every couple of weeks to help make this space more useful.

I'm sorry for the hiatus. I've really not been on Google+ very much.

This post profiling treating students as sense-makers instead of mistake-makers (Note that this not an original idea, in my case I attribute my understanding of it to Magdalene Lampert) has been very popular.

How do we work toward more children, even in teacher-led classrooms, being treated as sense-makers?

Grace Kelemanik, Amy Lucenta, and Susan Creighton are going to be presenting interactive workshops on standards of math practice 2, 7, and 8 for NCTM in the summer. I've worked with Grace a lot and I learn something every time I interact with her. The same is true for Amy and Susan. I highly recommend their workshops.
