Educators Love Real World Math
Hear Sue Totaro, Supervisor for Curriculum and Instruction K-12, share her perspective on how Better World Ed stories make math more human for kids. Sue and math teachers from her district, West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional School District, have been partnering with Better World Ed to bring the world into dozens of classrooms.
Practicing empathy can’t simply be a classroom’s “extra credit”. We’ve got to weave it right into the heart of every kind of class. Especially math class.
“How would you ever teach compassion and empathy in math class!?”
It has been a beautiful thing to see. Introducing Learning Journey stories directly into math class, we have seen students more excited about learning about the world, and about learning math.
Math is a universal language. It can help us all practice empathy, ecosystem understanding, creativity, and collaboration. Anywhere in the world.
Imagine every child, educator, and parent using the Learning Journey approach as their favorite way to learn math.
Close your eyes and imagine what that world will look like. A world where empathy, curiosity, compassion, and math learning blend together as one. When we crack that together, we can do anything.
