Webinar: Bringing together both community and STEM connections in PSTs’ mathematics teaching

Wednesday, April 22, 2020, 1-2:00 pm EDT

Presenters: Frances K. Harper, Zachary Stumbo, and Nicholas Kim, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Description: Join AMTE's National Technology Leadership Initiative (NTLI) Fellowship recipients as they share and discuss a project designed for methods courses to support PSTs to plan and teach mathematics lessons that leverage both transdisciplinary STEAM connections and students’ community funds of knowledge. Participants will follow a group of PSTs through the project and then brief results from research on the relationship between STEAM and community connections in PSTs’ mathematics lessons will be shared.
