Culturally Responsive Mathematics Teaching
- 3 Credits
Students bring a rich variety of cultural backgrounds and identities to classroom learning. Research suggests that teachers who value student culture and experience are better able to foster academic success, cultural competence, critical citizenship, and caring relationships. Culturally responsive mathematics is a pedagogy that seeks to energize the relationship between students' home and community culture and classroom mathematics learning. This fully online course will support practices that draw on student experience and diversity for enriched and engaged mathematics learning. All of the readings and activities included in this course support the Common Core Mathematics Content and Practice Standards and Common Core Standards for English Language Arts.
