201: Mathematics as a Human Right

This session focuses on unsettling long-held math practices that perpetuate inequities and on taking action to maximize educational advancement for all by exploring, “How can we adopt math practices that respect and honor students’ ways of knowing and being? Challenging narratives that justify the exclusion of students based on “learning loss” or “readiness”, we will identify barriers to math equity and offer guidance and resources for self-reflection and curriculum development. Session focus will be on sharing small yet powerful shifts in math practices around instruction, curriculum, assessment, and culture to create a classroom environment where all students, including students with disabilities, are leveraged as valuable members. Participants will have the opportunity to view, practice, and discuss concrete practices that they can bring back to their classrooms!

My interests are in cross-pollinating culturally responsive mathematics teaching with universal design for learning! Let's ensure all students have access to rigorous math learning opportunities that respect and honor student's identities, experiences, and ways of knowing.
