Catalyzing Change in Middle School Mathematics

  • Catalyzing Change in Middle School Mathematics: Engaging in Critical Conversations and Planning Actionable Steps (Grades 6-8)

    Description: How might we ensure that each and every middle school student develops into a mathematically literate and engaged member of a democratic society? How do we develop a high-quality mathematics program that is equitable, just, and inclusive? In this workshop, we will engage in critical conversations, and discuss and plan action steps that will cultivate students’ positive mathematical identities as they develop deep mathematical understanding, understand and critique the world through mathematics, and experience the wonder, joy, and beauty of mathematics.


    Participants will gain an understanding of -

    Ways to initiate critical conversations to address barriers that limit access to high-quality middle school mathematics

    Inequitable structures including student and teacher tracking that inhibit students' agency regarding who can and cannot do mathematics

    Equitable mathematics instruction that fosters students’ positive mathematical identities

    Action steps that will initiate change in middle school mathematics
