Grades and Test Scores Do Not Define Us as Math Learners: Cultivating Transformative Spaces for Anti-Racist Mathematics Education (Open to All)
Presented by Julia Aguirre
The COVID pandemic only amplified existing mathematics inequities in our schools that did harm to the children of Black, Brown, Indigenous, and working-class parents. We have an opportunity to do a radical reset that can transform the spaces in which we teach and learn mathematics. We actually know what works and what needs to change. Yet we continue to find ways to repackage processes that rank, sort, and segregate children. The question is, what will it take for us to collectively dismantle the racist systems, beliefs, and practices in order to cultivate math joy and curiosity in our classrooms?
Apr 21, 2022 07:00 PM : Humanizing Elementary Mathematics through Culturally Relevant Literature (Sponsored by McGraw Hill)
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. <br> <img src="/online-learning/img/logo/MGH_RM_webinar_logo3.jpg" alt="McGraw Hill and Reveal Math" width="455px" height="auto" />
