About Dr. Childs’ Session
Authentically Engaging Historically Excluded Students in the Mathematics Classroom
“Best practices” for mathematics instruction often exclude the unique needs of historically excluded students. In this session we will explore who are historically excluded students, discuss what is considered good math teaching, and engage in key strategies one can implement in their respective educational environments. Come learn why one should create mathematics classroom environments that authentically include historically excluded students.
Additional session information and registration will be available soon. Visit https://mcmi.uic.edu/summer-institute/ for the latest information and updates.
