Jen Roggi at AMTEC

Jen Roggi, alongside her UConn intern, Katie Kuegler,  presented to pre-service teachers from across the state at the AMTEC Mathematics Pre-service Teacher Conference held on January 27, 2024. The focus of their presentation was how the use of self-reflection and guided discourse can promote positive math identities and student agency and help to develop a strong math community within the classroom. Participants were shown how small changes can help with students’ perseverance, risk-taking, and collaboration, allowing them to see themselves as a valued member of the problem solving community.
