MTC 4 Social Justice: Supporting Students’ Math Identities Through Designing Culturally Relevant Mathematics Tasks

November 15 6:30 pm 8:00 pm EST

Join us for a talk by author Dr. Shelly Jones, co-author of the book, Engaging in Culturally Relevant Math Tasks: Fostering Hope in the Secondary Classroom with Drs. Lou Matthews and Yolanda Parker. The book – to be released next month – details multiple approaches for (re)designing tasks to be culturally responsive. Shelly will share one teacher’s experience with using the Revising a Task to Be Culturally Relevant Template to revise an existing task from her curriculum. We will use the template in breakout groups to revise a cognitively demanding math task, using a social justice standard!
