Creating strong PBL environments with an eye towards equitable teaching

  • Engage in a progression of purposefully sequenced problem-based learning experiences designed to deepen participants’ understanding of traditionally misunderstood secondary mathematics topics
  • Consciously study, design, and rehearse routines that promote active listening, mathematical reasoning, and making conceptual connections
  • Utilize instructional supports that promote rough draft talk and students’ acquisition of and precision in the use of mathematical language
  • Analyze classroom video with an explicit focus on creating strong mathematical learning environments that feature equitable practices.
  • Build sustainable relationships that promote ongoing collaborations focused on empowering learners (students and teachers) of mathematics.
