We are proud to announce that the US Math Recovery Council® will be presenting at NCTM Innov8 Conference on November 18th in St. Louis, Missouri. Come visit and hear our Lifesaver Session on “Discourse, Engagement, and Productive Struggle to Support Struggling Learners.” When students struggle, educators need to look beyond the tip of the iceberg to determine what concepts students do not know or cannot connect yet. Together, we will be identifying which Key Elements of Teaching can be utilized to develop high leverage instructional practices in a discourse-rich environment. Achievement skyrockets when teachers utilize mathematical discourse and powerful instructional strategies at a student's cutting edge of knowledge. Understanding, reasoning, and confidence is ramped up by empowering students to become self-driven, active learners! This session will be a great opportunity to provide you with the skills and resources to make the shift to implement productive discourse in your instruction immediately. We are excited to have the opportunity to share and deepen knowledge in connecting the dots towards putting research into practice and hope you can join us. We look forward to uniting and energizing everyone in a collegial environment.
