Dismantling Racism in Mathematics Instruction

  • What’s new? A math professional learning series for groups of Grades 6-8 teachers, math content coaches, and middle school administrators.

  • How and why is this useful? The learning series, facilitator notes, and additional asynchronous assignments enhance and support the dissemination of resources in the toolkit A Pathway To Equitable Math Instruction, with the aim of helping educators to learn and develop anti-racist math teaching practices.

  • What was a unique aspect of this project development? The team developed several tools to support the delivery of the series learning sessions, including an electronic “launchpad” for sharing the session agendas and relevant links, slide decks and resources for each session, and a personal notebook for participants to keep track of their reflections. Several of these tools have been used to support conversations with other groups of educators across California.
