Student Achievement Partners is excited to announce a new free virtual professional learning opportunity for educators working with K-12 mathematics. Dismantling Racism in Mathematics will invite participants to dig deeply into Stride 1 of the Math Equity Toolkit in order to imagine a truly inclusive and equitable classroom experience and begin to do the personal work needed to dismantle racism in mathematics instruction. Teachers will learn to reflect on and disrupt racist practices in the math classroom. Leaders will learn how to support the implementation of antiracist practices in the math classroom in their settings. 

The series will include five seminars, held every 2 weeks, with some pre-work and suggested application of learning between sessions. While not required, it is strongly encouraged for participants to attend all five seminars in the series. To support collaborative implementation during the series and beyond, it is recommended that colleagues attend together in building- or district-based teams.

SEMINAR 1:  Who am I?  Understanding my own identity and the impact it has on my mathematics instruction.

  • This is a space for educators who work with K-12 mathematics to come together to understand how their racial identity & positionality affect planning and implementing mathematics instruction and to interrogate their own biases that impact the classroom.

SEMINAR 2:  Who do I teach and what do I teach? Attending to my students’ identities and creating an identity affirming mathematics classroom.

  • This is a space for educators who work with K-12 mathematics to come together to think about attending to students’ identities, understand how to create culturally affirming spaces, and to practice identifying and creating culturally responsive math materials.

SEMINAR 3:  How do I teach?  Choosing antiracist instructional practices for my classroom.

  • This is a space for educators who work with K-12 mathematics to come together to think about what spaces in mathematics instruction and classrooms are racist, understand methods in which to create antiracist spaces, and practice making antiracist instructional decisions.

SEMINAR 4:  Who are my collaborators?  Working with the families and people in my community.

  • This is a space for educators who work with K-12 mathematics to come together to think about leading with historically excluded voices and engaging families and school communities in antiracist work. 

SEMINAR 5:  So what now?  Continuing my journey as an antiracist practitioner.

  • This is a space for educators who work with K-12 mathematics to come together to think about how to sustain antiracist work, including how resistance will show up and how to understand the ways to respond and continue the work.
