Mathematics Educator Appreciation Day Conference (MEAD)
The UArizona Center for Recruitment and Retention of Mathematics Teachers (CRR) is hosting this year's Mathematics Educator Appreciation Day Conference (MEAD) virtually on Saturday, January 23, 2021. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Jennifer Bay-Williams, author of Math Fact Fluency and co-author of Teaching Student-Centered Mathematics. This year’s event will be free for all Arizona Teachers and $125 for everyone else.
This year MEAD will have over 220 sessions! The conference will be scheduled throughout the day with 6 session blocks running from 8:00 am - 4:30 pm. However, each participant will only select three sessions to attend in order to maintain small session sizes (60 person capacity). The keynote address will be open to all (12:45-2:00 pm).
MEAD has invited presenters to work together to create strands, where participants are able to dive deeper into certain topics:
- Reaching Emerging Multilingual Students in the Mathematics Classroom
- Social Justice in the Mathematics Classroom
- Complex Instruction (an instructional strategy and pedagogical philosophy that supports all learners in engaging in challenging content)
- Technology Integration
- Math and Computer Science
- Math and Economics/Personal Finance
- STEM with a capital M
- Active Learning in Secondary and Post-Secondary Education
