The San Diego County Office of Education provides direct services to districts, collaborates with projects and agencies, disseminates materials and resources to support K-12 mathematics literacy, and supports student achievement through district, region, and state professional development programs. These activities provide the ongoing training in methodology, curriculum, technology, and assessment that teachers need to provide students throughout the county with a quality mathematics education.
SUM OF IT ALL PODCAST
Join Audrey Mendivil and Mark Alcorn in an asynchronous book club for teachers and leaders. Read along with us by either previewing or reviewing a chapter of the selected book in the podcast and continue the conversation on Twitter using #SumMathChat or email us at Sumofitallpodcast@sdcoe.net. New episodes air on Fridays starting in September 2023.
Most educators have spent time thinking about the ways we learn, but how many of us have spent time thinking about the ways we unlearn? Join us as we read Unlearning: Changing your beliefs and our classroom with UDL by Allison Posey and Katie Novak and discover ways to unlearn the beliefs, assumptions and teaching practices that are no longer serving our students well in math classes.
Are some people really "math people" and others aren't? What does it take to expose and dismantle the stereotypes, negative mindsets and systemic opportunity gaps in math education? Join us as we read and discuss Lidia Gonzalez's book Bad at Math? Dismantle harmful beliefs that hinder equitable mathematics education.
Standardized tests have been driving curriculum and instruction decisions in mathematics for decades, so how can we rethink our focus on big data in a way that transforms math teaching and learning and the experiences our students have in math class? Join us as we read and discuss Shane Safir and Jamila Dugan’s Street Data: A next-generation model for equity, pedagogy and school transformation with a math lens.
