Tower of Power: Social Learning through Heterogeneous Groups

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

In the session, we'll highlight the power of social learning through an interactive activity attending to the Math Practice Standards and exploring ideas of educational equity in our math classes. Our goal is to simulate the leveling of learners and illuminate the effect that this practice has on students’ access to learning.

You'll engage in a hands-on building activity, then we'll debrief this experiential metaphor in an interactive discussion pulling from both your experience and current research.
