An Equitable Approach to Addressing Missed Learning Opportunities

We are proud to announce that one of our founders, Rhonda Hewer, will be a lead speaker at the 2022 NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) Annual Meeting & Exposition in Los Angeles. The meeting is the largest math conference in North America and is held from Sept. 28 – Oct 1, 2022.

As an expert in her field, Rhonda will lead a session titled “An Equitable Approach to Addressing Missed Learning Opportunities.” Her presentation will address how one school district used lessons learned from the pandemic to equitably and inclusively “widen the zone of learning” in math for students. She will address the missed learning opportunities and educate schools to help them develop an effective system of interventions, beginning by providing targeted support as part of core instruction.

Understanding Your Child’s Elementary School Math

The Stratford Public Library hosts Rhonda Hewer, a math educator for over 18 years. Her workshops were developed out of many conversations with parents and guardians about “the way they are teaching math these days”. Parents expressed feeling frustrated, confused, worried and intimidated as their children come home using a plethora of drawings and unfamiliar strategies to solve problems, some problems so foreign that parents say they feel as if they are speaking a different language from their children.

During this one hour talk, parents will gain a glimpse into:

1. How children are learning mathematics today (grades 5-8)
2. Why learning mathematics through this approach is beneficial
3. How you can help your child succeed by supporting the math they are learning at home
