In San Lorenzo Unified School District, we, as a Mathematics Collaborative, have been exploring ongoing ways to incorporate technology into accessible and engaging math lessons. The focus of the work is to provide students with opportunities to experience their course level content, and be engaged with Mathematical Learning Routines that are based in the Design Principles for promoting discussion as written by the Stanford Graduate School of Education.

We, by no means have found the ""magic bullet"", but we do believe we are moving in a more equitable direction in Mathematics for Middle School students by working collaboratively, sharing resources, and using Lesson Study to have a lens on how content and pedagogy are inherently linked to each student's success in math.

Our cafe style approach will be to share a 7th grade lesson created by one of our lead teachers, and use it to contextualize how we think about technology and ELD in Math. We will share specific ways that we design accessible lessons to build student agency and develop academic language.

Note: This is a BYOD Session! Please bring a laptop or tablet with you to the session if you have one available.

  Sessions: Educational Equity
  • WHAT WILL ATTENDEES GAIN? We envision teachers inspired to think and learn more about what ELD in math looks like.
  • BEYOND "STAND & DELIVER" Teachers will have the opportunity to explore rates and make their own conclusions about how middle school students think and explore using technology.
