603: Delete the Mute Button: Restoring the Power of Student Voices

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How do we restore the power of students’ voices in our classrooms? How do we create experiences that uplift students’ voices? We start by eliminating the mute button. The ethos of our math classrooms should be an environment where students are encouraged to express their voices, ask questions, listen to different perspectives, and create counterarguments. In this session, we celebrate the power of students’ voices as the authority in our classrooms through stories and videos. We explore obstacles that suppress student voices, teacher moves that amplify all voices within a math lesson, and routines that allow all students’ voices to be heard. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in a simulated lesson and reflect on the session’s learning goals.
