ICTM aspires to amplify the learning and growth of Iowa mathematics teachers as they seek to improve their practice. We know there are great things happening in Iowa mathematics classrooms, and we want to support sharing and learning from one another. We invite you to share what you are doing or how you support mathematics teaching and learning by writing an article!
We often hear from people say that they have no idea what they could write about. It’s not uncommon to feel like you don’t have anything interesting to share or that you’re not doing anything special. However, we know that’s not true because we see many people every year at the ICTM conference as well as the NCTM conference engaging in lively discussions about what they are learning and implementing.
We welcome article topics that give insight to your professional learning and experience in working to improve mathematics instruction and students’ mathematics learning experiences.
Most of us aren’t professional writers and don’t have a lot of time to work on something like this. However, we can all learn and benefit from each other's' work and experiences, so it is important to share. So when you imagine yourself writing an article, think about sitting down with a peer to share something you are excited about. That’s the kind of vibe we are imagining.
“Think Abouts” for article topics:
Criteria for article submission:
We fully understand and agree that the writing process can be intimidating. We don’t want anyone to decline sharing amazing things happening in mathematics teaching and learning because of this. There will be times when an article is short and sweet and other times when it will be more in depth. If you would find it helpful, we will work with you throughout the writing process to offer support and guidance.
Process to submit an article:
Let’s all learn and grow together as members of ICTM and this great mathematics community! We look forward to hearing from you!!
