Dates and Topics for 2021-22
What does a culturally responsive math classroom look like? How do you create an anti-racist learning space? We started this work in the spring, and we want to continue to discuss how we can create inclusive classrooms where all students feel capable of learning math. We will continue our work from the spring to create a tool box full of culturally responsive and anti-racist pedagogical moves for the math classroom.
What is geometry and why do we teach it? How do we develop spatial reasoning in our students starting in Kindergarten? Geometry is a forgotten subject as curriculums have shifted to a focus on building algebraic reasoning. How do we connect the spatial reasoning of geometry to the abstract thinking of algebra to create a stronger understanding of both subjects? These are a few possible ideas that we can explore in our second two sessions while also using some of the tools we developed in the previous sessions centered around anti-racist t pedagogy in the math classroom.
Note that all sessions will be online and are free. Participants will receive 2 CTLE hours.
