# College of Education

George Reese will lead a discussion with the group on "Math Workshops for Teachers."

Bill Cope from the College of Education will present "Assessing Science by Assessing Writing: A Report on the Assess-As-You-Go Writing Assistant Project."

Abstract: Preparation to teach school mathematics should include knowing how to respond to classroom mathematical interactions. Research literature of mathematics teaching asserts that teacher’s ability to respond to classroom interactions is dependent on her knowledge of subject matter and pedagogical strategies as well as instant recognition of what the student is saying. As a consequence, teacher education programs should cultivate teacher’s ability to respond to classroom mathematical interactions by practicing the integration of mathematical and pedagogical reasoning discourses.

Gloriana González from the Department of Curriculum & Instruction will join the group to discuss "Teaching with Dynamic Geometry: Is There Something New for Students to Learn?" this week.
