Catalyzing Change in Middle School Mathematics: Initiating Critical Conversations Centered on the 4 Key Recommendations

Presented by Sarah Bush , Christa Jackson , George J. Roy and Eric Milou

Our current situation further brings to the forefront inequities and inconsistencies that exist within middle school mathematics programs. We will explore the four key recommendations from NCTM's recently released Catalyzing Change in Middle School Mathematics to examine the roles of middle schools in broadening the purposes of learning mathematics, creating equitable structures, implementing equitable instruction, and developing deep mathematical understanding. Special attention will be given to how Catalyzing Change can provide structure and guidance during our current situations – positioning the development of students' positive mathematical identity and strong sense of agency at the forefront. Let's work together to rightfully empower young adolescences through mathematics!
