Transformational Teaching in Math – Podcast Episode 36 | Podcast Episode 36
Classnotes Podcast (June 18, 2008) Clearly much of our math instruction is not producing the results we need. Things need to change. But change does not have to mean throwing out everything we know. It does not mean focusing on fixing problems. Kathryn Brown, an IDRA education associate and developer of IDRA’s Math Smart! model, describes how teachers are building on what they know to transform their teaching to better guide and empower student mathematical thinking. She says teachers with the active support of administrators can look at the beauty of the progression of their teaching so that all students have access. Kathy is interviewed by Bradley Scott, Ph.D., director of the IDRA South Central Collaborative for Equity.
