What Ignites Us?

Robert Q. Berry, III, Diane Briars, Gail Burrill, Linda Gojak, John SanGiovanni, Max Ray-Riek and Annie Fetter

• Opening Session

Wednesday, November 11, 2015 | 5:30-7:00 p.m.
Room L100 (Minneapolis Convention Center)

Seven talented speakers share their professional passions in this high-energy, thought-provoking program. The catch: Each person has only 8 minutes and 20 slides to communicate the message. How can we develop leaders in effective teaching practices? How can we get students to persevere, even when they make mistakes? What does “computational fluency” mean, and how do we achieve it? What happens after a student completes Algebra II? How can technology help students and teachers grow? What can we do to ensure equity?
