Mathematical Practices, Teaching Practices, and Social Justice: Making Connections

Ended Jul 25, 2020

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

Full course description

Mathematical practices, teaching practices, and social justice are all recognized to be crucially important for the quality of children's mathematics education but are often inconsistently understood and enacted in instruction. Faculty, teacher educators, and practitioners in this session will be invited to work together with Charles Wilkes to connect these critical components of mathematics education through the observation, analysis, critique, and reflection on rich mathematics instruction that creatively interweaves all of these themes.

This synchronous 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.
