Branding your Class: Engage your Students by Sharing your Passion! FILLING

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

At last year’s conference, Terry Norcross was introduced to the concept of “branding” himself as a teacher and became inspired to bring his love of bicycles and motorcycles into the classroom. He now uses hands-on experiences, working with manipulatives such as working engines (standard and metric), wheels, nuts and bolts, chains, pistons and gas tanks, to make math real to his students.

In this session, Terry will share how he developed and implemented his “branding” effort, then help you develop a plan to “brand” your classroom to increase student engagement and deepen learning.  You’ll discuss logistics and considerations, get first-hand input on how to overcome potential obstacles, and discuss the successes and milestones awaiting teachers who choose to share their passions with students to highlight how math can be found, and impacts, everyday life.
