    Promoting empowerment, meaningful participation, and success for each and every student

     

    Access and Equity: Promoting High-Quality Mathematics in Grades 3–5 examines the challenges related to access, equity, and empowerment faced by students making the critical transition into mathematics of the third through fifth grades. It provides guidance for making these essential improvements in practice:

     

      • Finding ways to reframe common beliefs about nondominant students and communities

          • Meeting the linguistic demands in mathematics classrooms for emerging bilingual students

              • Adopting approaches that engage all students in mathematical discourse

                  • Implementing professional development that can make an impact with culturally and linguistically diverse students

                     

                    The third through fifth grades are a crucial period when educational imbalances begin to take hold, as inequities in resources and expectations become more pronounced and significant. This book will help teachers provide a challenging, effective mathematics education for each and every student in those classrooms, and thus fully implement the Access and Equity Principle in NCTM’s Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All.
