Cathy Seeley Reviews

  • Northwest Colorado Board of Cooperative Educational Services (NW BOCES) - Jun 21 2017

  • I appreciated the fact that someone was staying on top of the logistics and keeping us on track. I've coordinated similar workshops for my school in the past, and it's a lot to plan. It took the pressure off, knowing that there was help along the way. Cathy Seeley is a lovely person and was well-liked and received by the faculty. Thank you!

Cathy Seeley Speaking Topics

  • Title: “Politics, Potholes, and Possibilities: Being an effective mathematics leader in a new era”

    Description: The momentum from two decades of mathematics improvement is picking up speed fast. How can mathematics education leaders play a role in guiding this work to keep it from turning into a runaway train? We’ll discuss national, state, and local changes and what they mean for every mathematics education leader.

  • Title: “Clueless—Moving beyond tricks, recipes, clues, and keys to develop mathematical thinking”

    Description: The CCSSM offer a renewed opportunity to develop mathematical habits of mind as called for by NCTM and others over 25 years of mathematics standards. How can we use this opportunity to support teachers in moving beyond superficial strategies like having students translate words and learn tricks for solving problems? How can teachers help every student develop quantitative skills, learn to think mathematically, and assume responsibility for their learning?

  • Title: “Smarter Than We Think: Helping Every Student Reach Their Potential”

    Description: We continue to learn more about how students learn and how all students can get smarter in mathematics. What can a leader do to help teachers evaluate--and potentially adjust--their goals, expectations, teaching strategies, and classroom organizational structures toward success for all students?

  • Title: “The Right Kind of Struggling: Helping All Students Become Mathematical Thinkers”

    Description: Having students struggle is one of teachers’ biggest challenges in implementing the mathematical thinking described in the Practices. Yet we know that engaging in constructive struggles is essential to learning. How can we help teachers get past their fear of students giving up and build student learning on working productively through struggling?

  • Title: “The Answer Still Matters . . . Eventually”

    Description: In effective classrooms today, teachers use engaging problems to help studentsdevelop mathematical thinking and learn mathematical skills. Sometimes we even say, ‘It’s not the answer that matters, it’s the process.’ But the answer does matter—we just need to find ways to slow down the race to answers and use the journey as a vehicle for learning.
