On Tuesday, May 14, Stenhouse hosted its third #StenhouseMath Chat with well-known Canadian math expert and author, Marian Small, to discuss the ideas from her upcoming book, Understanding the Math We Teach and How to Teach It. Here are some of the Tweets from Marian that really resonated with participants.
"If kids can't remember every little thing, shouldn't we focus on things worth remembering?"
"As an educator, I need to show my students I love to learn. So I need new learning to talk about with them."
"When you talk to kids, they remember teachers with passion (or weird earrings)."
