Kelly Shank Slavik will present *Empowering Students to Own Their Lea
rning*.

**Presentation Description:**

Every single student i
s a capable mathematician, so how do we help them see that? In today’s fast
-paced, informational world, an elementary student could figure out how to
do a calculus problem in under 10 minutes. Sure, they might not understand
much of it, but they can get a correct answer. That forces the role of the
teacher to change from information giver to facilitator of thinking and rea
soning. Come to this session to learn some low-effort, high-efficacy strate
gies to help students see themselves as mathematicians and be proud to own
their mathematics learning. This session is appropriate for all grades K-12
