Teaching Channel Talks Episode 77: What’s Really Going on Here? Northwestern’s Exploration of Mathematical Thinking (w/ Sarah Larison)

Are you looking at your students through a strength-based lens? This week on Teaching Channel Talks, Wendy is joined by Sarah Larison, from Northwestern University, to discuss her work in advancing teacher preparation, particularly through the use of video. While mathematical argumentation is at the focal point of this insightful conversation, Sarah’s research helps educators of all content areas go beyond filing gaps in student learning and instead, notice student thinking.

Our Guest

Sarah Larison is currently a doctoral student in learning sciences at Northwestern University. A former elementary school teacher working in Chicago public schools, Sarah is passionate about rehumanizing mathematics teaching and learning in schools and supporting teacher learning and development.
