Transforming Geometry with Creativity, Depth, and Student Ownership

BLCFeatureTopicIn this episode, Alan speaks to Jessica Caviness, geometry teacher at Coppell High School in Texas and winner of the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching . The two will discuss Jessica’s use of Twitter to engage her students in real-life applications of geometry. Supporting examples of this work can be found in a blog post titled Connecting Students to Geometry Through Twitter and an article titled How Twitter Can Be Used as a Powerful Educational Tool.

To learn more about this type of teaching and learning with Twitter, we invite you to Boston to attend our Building Learning Communities Summer Conference. More information on our conference is also available at
