Fostering Student Motivation in Mathematics Instruction Aligned with the Common Core - Education Connections Webinar

This Education Connections webinar will be held from 1:00 - 2:00 pm EDT. Dr. 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, Dr. Middleton will talk about what teachers can do to help all students, and especially English learner students, access critical content and succeed in mathematics.  

James A. Middleton is Professor of Engineering Education and Director of the Center for Research on Education in Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology at Arizona State University. Dr. Middleton’s 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.
