My thanks to everyone who came! In addition to watching (and sharing) the five-minute version of this session below, I encourage you to take advantage of these resources:
- Read the compilation of the tweets posted during the session. Fun reminders!
- Joe Schwartz’s Blog – Joe is an elementary math specialist in central New Jersey. He blogs about using Noticing and Wondering at his school, among other things, and I’ve pointed you to a N&W Sampler that he wrote last January.
- Do check out the rest of my Ignite talks, available from the link right below. Ones I mentioned in the session include “Ever Wonder What They’d Notice (If Only Someone Would Ask)?” and “The Hurrier I Go, the Behinder I Get”.
This session is basically the long version of this Ignite talk from the 2015 NCTM Annual Meeting:
