Description: Equity-based mathematics teaching requires more than implementing new curriculum or using specific practices because it involves taking a stand for what is right. It requires mathematics teachers to reflect on their own identity, positions, and beliefs. Participants will consider productive and unproductive beliefs with an emphasis on facilitating each and every student's development of mathematical processes and practices. Participants will be challenged to consider beliefs that hinder students’ mathematical growth. We will engage in mathematical discussions and mathematics problems throughout the day.

This workshop is geared for Teachers, Teacher Leaders and Administration.  Teams are encouraged to attend!
