Humanizing Elementary Mathematics through Culturally Relevant Literature (Sponsored by McGraw Hill)
Presented by Georgina Rivera
Elementary classrooms are places where students hear stories from their teachers and peers. What if those stories created windows and mirrors for students that connected them to mathematics? Culturally relevant children's literature creates an opportunity for students to be seen in stories, connect to their own stories, and learn mathematics through illustrations or contexts. Join us as we explore stories and strategies that can humanize our mathematics classrooms and help each and every student be seen and heard.

Mathematics classrooms can be a dehumanizing experience for many of our disabled students. In this presentation, we provide a framework for humanizing mathematics education. From this framework, we discuss how teachers can humanize the experiences of their disabled students through curricular, collaborative, and caring considerations.
