The 2018-19 institute will focus in on applying culturally relevant pedagogy in the mathematics. We will also examine how integrating mathematics with English Language Arts, Science, and the Arts can further engage students in the learning. This conference series seeks to accomplish the following:
Help teachers embrace their identities and the privilege associated with those identities
Help teachers understand how their identities influence and impact their instructional practice.
(Developing a Reflective Practice) a.) Acknowledgement of ones biases b.) Critical reflection on teaching practice c.) Realize that ones biases and experiences directly impacts what students can/cannot learn 3. Create a counter narrative to stereotypes typically associated with children of color and children in poverty. (Critical Race Pedagogy)
4.Empower teachers and students to embody a classroom that is engaging and responsive to all. (Responsive Instruction) a.) Provide tools for immediate application
The Responsive Mathematics Institute is made possible by funding from the MI STEM Advisory Council grant
