Spring Symposium:  Come for the dragons, stay for the joy!

Come experience the joy of teaching with Big Beautiful Problems in a Thinking Classroom.  Whether you're just beginning or have been teaching this way for a while, let's get together and talk about it!  Alicia Burdess will share her experiences implementing Peter Liljedahl's Thinking Classroom frame work over the last 10 years (starting with a problem, managing the flow, consolidating the learning, and figuring out assessment).  We'll finish off the day using a children's book as a catalyst for a joyful math exploration.  Teachers will leave with a resource full of big beautiful problems and a copy of Alicia's newly published children's book, The Dragon Curve:  A Magical Math Journey.
