The theme is intended to encourage abstracts and proposals that focus on ACTIVE participation of attendees during the parallel sessions.
We are interested in sessions about any aspect of IBL, but especially encourage submissions to the following special sessions:
? My Favorite IBL Activity: Share your favorite IBL activity or group of activities with the participants. ? IBL Outreach: Share how you use IBL in outreach activities such as Math Teachers? Circles, Math Student Circles, math clubs, and math camps. ? IBL Professional Development: Share how you educate others in the preK-16 educational community about IBL. ? Nuts & Bolts: Share your most successful (or not so successful) approaches to engaging students, grading, assessment, and marketing in an IBL classroom. ? General IBL: Share other engaging IBL topics that do not fit into an above session.
Sessions will be a bit longer than in the past to account for the focus on active participation. Specifically, sessions will be 30 minutes in duration (25 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes reserved for questions).
To submit a proposal for a talk or workshop session, send the following information to
Angie Hodge (firstname.lastname@example.org), TJ Hitchman (email@example.com) and Norma Flores (firstname.lastname@example.org)
with a subject line ?Legacy 2014 Abstract Submission.?
