On Saturday, February 6, 2021 we will host the 3rd Annual Powerful Learners Conference as a virtual event, focused on how we can reenergize, reconnect and refresh as educators to keep students feeling safe and supported in this most unusual time. Together, we will build capacity in our schools and community spaces for honoring the unique needs and gifts of our students, setting the stage for them to thrive and break cycles of structural inequity.

As teachers we spend so much time focusing on procedural fluency and conceptual understanding. When are we spending time in the classroom supporting student’s own math identities?  In this session, we will explore factors that influence mathematical identity development, consider strategies for cultivating a safe learning environment, and engage in a math activity that supports students’ self-awareness and agency.
