Enabling Equitable Participation in Classroom Discourse

Ended Jul 25, 2020

Sorry! The enrollment period is currently closed. Please check back soon.

Full course description

Join Heather Beasley and Emily Theriault-Kimmey for a session that will enable teachers to demystify elements of teaching involved in creating classroom environments in which each and every student is invited, empowered, and motivated to engage in deep mathematical work. We will collectively examine, and then practice ourselves, a range of strategies for cultivating respectful relationships with students and establishing norms and routines for mathematical discourse that can serve as the foundation for structuring equitable participation.

This asynchronous professional learning workshop is part of the Virtual K-12 Laboratory Classes and Professional Learning Workshops. The K-12 laboratory classes are structured to make it possible for educators, policymakers, and education advocates to engage directly in the close study of teaching practice in elementary mathematics. The program will provide participants with opportunities to delve into the complexity of teaching, explore and challenge what it means to use skillful teaching practice to disrupt injustice, as well as develop specific professional skills.
