Vulnerability isn’t a weakness—in fact, it’s our most accurate measure of courage! In this edWebinar, we dig into the benefits of empowering students and teachers to be vulnerable in math classrooms, such as:

  • The growth of positive classroom- and building-level culture
  • Strengthened teacher-student relationships
  • Increased student engagement and motivation
  • Student willingness to take risks and provide authentic responses
  • Improved learning outcomes

You also have time to collaborate with other leaders to see how to create these safe spaces where students are encouraged to stay curious and develop positive attitudes about learning. This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers and school and district leaders.
