Achieving Access and Equity in K-5 Mathematics Classroom
This course will provide participants with the foundation for understanding and implementing equity-based mathematics teaching practices. Teaching in a multidimensional classroom is a challenge, but one well worth the time and effort it takes to establish. In our work together in this course, Achieving Equity in the K-5 Mathematics Classroom, we will examine closely the instructional strategies that promote access to all. We will look at an instructional model that incorporates these strategies, and work together to customize it for our own classrooms. Feedback and advice will be shared.
Closing the achievement gap in mathematics is, indeed, a formidable undertaking. It is an important one for teachers, and well worth the effort. As teachers of mathematics, we have a wonderful opportunity to open mathematics to all students. We start by providing positive messages about our subject and continue with equitable teaching strategies that empower all students to succeed.
