It's 2021 -- as if you needed my reminder! Thanks again to everyone who participated in the lively grading conversation this week. There is other math news worth sharing, so keep reading for the latest and reach out to me if you have any questions.

CCTM Taking Action Book Study

January's CCTM book study brings us to a session about posing purposeful questions. As usual, there are three opportunities to join in the conversation: Saturday morning (1/9), Tuesday afternoon (1/12), or Thursday evening (1/14). If you don't have the book, that's fine, although it's always most effective for those who've done the reading first. And if you haven't attended a previous meeting, that's fine, too. You can learn more about the Taking Action book study and register for a session at
