On Monday, December 15th, twenty K-12 math and resource teachers from Mother Teresa High School and St Luke came together for a powerful day of professional learning. It was third of five days the group will gather this school year to go through a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) designed by Jo Boaler at Stanford University called How to Learn Math.
The course explores how we can move our students and ourselves from a fixed to more of a growth mindset in math.
Jo Boaler has a wonderful website for teachers, parents, and students called Youcubed
There is a welcome video for parents there that will give you some insights into the ideas we are exploring. We encourage you to check out some of the posts on the site.
