When:  May 16, 2018 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM (ET)
This webinar provides an overview of Catalyzing Change and initiates critical conversations centering on the following serious challenges: explicitly broadening the purposes for teaching high school mathematics beyond a focus on college and career readiness; dismantling structural obstacles that stand in the way of mathematics working for each and every student; implementing equitable instructional practices; identifying Essential Concepts that all high school students should learn and understand at a deep level; and organizing the high school curriculum around these Essential Concepts in order to support students' future personal and professional goals.Catalyzing Change is written to engage all individuals with a stake in high school mathematics in the serious conversations that must take place to bring about and give support to necessary changes.
