I did not understand what it would feel like to be isolated from the math education community when I wrote this.
After more than five years away from NCTM conferences and with the demise of Twitter as a valuable space to chat with other educators, I feel more alone, professionally, than I have at any other point in my career. I bought some carbon offsets to mitigate, as much as possible, the environmental cost of my participation. I decided to rejoin the community by coming to Washington, D.C., to present at the upcoming NCTM conference.
I’m presenting an instructional routine educators can use to teach their students how to argue constructively in math class. It will be similar to this online workshop I facilitated three years ago.
It would be great to connect with others going to the conference! Karaoke, anyone?
