Social, Emotional, and Academic Development (SEAD): Maze Moment!
Webinar – December 17 @ 4:00 pm EDT Click HERE to register.
The learning process is beautifully non-linear. Yet many students enter our schools believing it should follow a straight, uninterrupted path. How can we create rituals that help adults and students understand and process the conflict between this belief about learning and the reality of learning? It’s important that the ups and downs, the forward leaps and the backward steps, as well as the apparent dead ends, are normalized as important parts of the learning process. In a New York City school, one teacher, with the support of his mathematics coach, has worked to reorient the narrative with his students. Through this collaborative effort, the Maze Moment activity was born – an activity that has positively affected student perseverance and growth mindset in several schools with which ISA works.
Join the Institute for Student Achievement (ISA), a division of Educational Testing Service (ETS), for this second in a series of webinars, as we dive more deeply into our work in the area of social, emotional, and academic development (SEAD). In this webinar, you will hear from a mathematics teacher and ISA mathematics coach on a specific activity – Maze Moment – and its impact on students’ academic demeanor. You will also learn the process for developing this kind of activity and the importance of ensuring that academic classrooms address students’ social and emotional needs and how that approach makes for better teaching and learning.
