Joseph Bolz presents emPowering Students: Practical Ways to Approach Social Justice.

Joe Bolz PD promo imageSession Description
As math teachers, it is easy to choose the side of neutrality, to think that mathematics is without culture and for everyone. However, this stance of neutrality only furthers the divides society has created between students of different races, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds. Join us as we continue the work we started with Robert Berry in order to develop practical and hands-on ways you can promote social justice in your classrooms.

About the Presenter
Joseph Bolz is a math teacher and department leader at George Washington High School in Denver Public Schools, as well as a CCTM teaching award winner and the CCTM treasurer. Joe's passion is to make mathematics meaningful using a variety of techniques including games, group tasks, projects, and real-world problems. Joe knows that math is so much more than number crunching – math is deciding where to put different plants in your garden, math is building a swing for your porch, math is finding the best bus route across town, math is baking and driving and exercising and math is an art.
