Episode 37: Increasing Equity For All Learners Part 1 - Creating a Shared Background w/ Pam and Dawn




Desiree Harrison 0:00


With episode 37, we begin a mini-series about increasing equity for all learners, with two of the authors of the text, Numeracy for all Learners: Teaching Mathematics to Students with Special Needs.


Don't worry if you haven't read this book, or even if you've never heard of it.


This series is for all stakeholders - that's parents, teachers, coaches, and principals. And the episodes are divided into small chunks because I want to make sure that you have the chance to absorb and reflect on everything presented.


In this first episode of the series, we begin to create a shared understanding and background of what is meant by numeracy. And, also, a shared understanding of the Math Recovery pedagogy and guiding principles.


Episode 38, subtitled, Using Wait Time, continues the discussion about the guiding principles and also discusses why using wait time is a crucial instructional strategy to use in the classroom.


Part 3 of the mini-series, begins a conversation about culturally relevant teaching and provides ready to implement strategies for making math tasks accessible for all learners.


The last episode of the mini-series is a bonus episode that helps us connect all of the pieces of the mini-series together.


If you're an educator, invite your teaching partners, or maybe even your admin to a listening party for this min-series on increasing equity for all learners.
