Education Connections will be hosting a webinar on Wednesday, August 13, from 1-2 pm EDT, titled, “Fostering Student Motivation in Mathematics Instruction Aligned with the Common Core.” In this webinar, James Middleton will share strategies for fostering student motivation in the context of Common Core aligned mathematics instruction. Drawing on his extensive research and experience working with school districts, Middleton will talk about what teachers can do to help all students, and especially English learner students, access critical content and succeed in mathematics.
Middleton is a professor of Engineering Education in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering and director of ASU’s Center for Research on Education in Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology. His research interests focus on children’s mathematical thinking, teacher and student motivation in mathematics, and teacher change in mathematics. He is currently engaged in a project studying the sustainability of changes in urban elementary teachers’ mathematics practices.
All of his work has been conducted in collaborative partnerships with diverse, economically challenged, urban schools. This relationship has resulted in a significant positive impact on the direction that partner districts have taken, including a significant increase in mathematics achievement in the face of a rising poverty rate.
