Come create the Math classroom we all needed in our youth!
This workshop for educators of all types will sharpen your anti-racist lens and engage you in anti-racist practices for the Math Classroom. It’s an introduction to what an anti-racist Math classroom could look and feel like. We will racialize what it means to be a “mathematician” and explore ways dominant Math curriculum and pedagogy cause harm to BIPoC students. Grounded in a shared understanding of anti-racist values, we will explore ways to adopt a culturally sustaining approach to Mathematics. We will draw from our own experiences as Math educators, as well as the research of Dr. Gholdy Muhammad, Dr. Zaretta Hammond and Dr. Chris Emdin. The goal is to leave the session inspired, dreaming and ready to start engaging in anti-racist work with the Math geniuses in your community.
Anti-racism and Culturally Sustaining Practices don’t just belong in the humanities. It’s also time for a drastic change in how we teach Math. Come dream with me, learn from our ancestors, and create anti-racist Math classrooms that affirm students of all identities.
