Dr. Jo Boaler's article, "Math Class Doesn't Work. Here's the Solution was published in Time Magazine: http://time.com/4970465/how-to-improve-math-class/ The article talks about math anxiety which is something my learners experience anytime I mention the word math test. Dr. Boaler gives her perspective on how to alleviate this anxiety and to help student's increase their learning. "The best mathematicians are often deep, slow thinkers - qualities that run contrary to what students are taught to prioritize and perform: speed," says Dr. Boaler. How does her article relate to what we experience in the Adult Education Classroom? What takeaways or ideas do you have?
