Goals:

  • Learn: How can we use improvement science tools to deepen our understanding of the problem and build upon bright spots to guide our collective work?

  • Connect: How can we learn from each other and share our learning as a network?

  • Get Moving: What will we try in our own contexts to support students’ mathematical agency and success, and how will we organize the work moving forward?

Practices & Concepts Introduced:

Network Launch, November 2016

Goals:

  • Experience & Understand: Explore how social status impacts student mathematical agency.

  • Face Into Our Data: Celebrate successes so far, and fearlessly look for areas to improve.

  • Keep Moving: Develop plans for testing and sharing our learning.

  • Connect: Learn from each other and build our network community.

 

Practices & Concepts Introduced:

Winter Convening, February 2017

Goals:

  • Practice & Prepare: Disrupt harmful status patterns leading to inequitable student learning.

  • Face Into Our Data: Celebrate successes so far, and fearlessly look for areas to improve.

  • Explore & Share: Experience and share practices across the network.

  • Plan & Do: Build on shared learning to plan and carry out next steps.

 

Practices & Concepts Introduced:

Spring Convening, April 2017

Goals:

  • Face Into Our Data & Set Goals: What are we learning from this year’s baseline data? What do we want to achieve this year? How can we effectively collect data on our goals?

  • Launch, Explore, Discuss: In what ways does a launch, explore, discuss framework provide opportunity for students to develop a deep conceptual understanding?

  • Become Students of Our Students’ Thinking: What lesson structures provide opportunities to deeply understand student thinking?

 

Practices & Concepts Introduced:

Fall Convening, October 2017

​Goals:

  • To get better together at slowing down and surfacing student thinking so that students can grapple with ideas together and arrive at a shared understanding of concepts.  

  • Assumptions:

    • The more students think hard and participate, the more they learn.

    • The more we help students engage in discussion about each other’s ideas, the more we learn together. (i.e. it’s not just a share out, but a dialogue that unpacks how people are thinking and how mathematical ideas are related)

    • The more we can make it safe to participate, the more we can disrupt harmful status issues.

 

Practices & Concepts Introduced:

Winter Convening, February 2018

Goals:

  • Celebrate progress, successes and student impact.

  • Consolidate our learning and make plans for ourselves and our schools moving forward.

  • To get better together at slowing down and surfacing student thinking so that students can grapple with ideas together and arrive at a shared understanding of concepts.
