Culturally Responsive Pedagogy
An essential first step to promoting positive mathematical identity is to know the learners. By understanding our students' cultures, languages, interests, and traditions, teachers create the meaningful classroom learning experiences students need to connect with content and build understanding in mathematics.
TODOS: Mathematics for ALL is an international professional organization that advocates for equity and excellence in mathematics education for ALL students - in particular, Latina/o students. As part of NCTM's 100 Days of Professional Development, TODOS co-hosted four sessions with NCTM. Links to the recordings from each of the sessions are below.
