Speaker Series

The Tri-County Culturally Responsive Mathematics speaker series is a collaboration between Oakland Schools, Washtenaw ISD’s Responsive Teaching Institute, and Wayne County RESA. The project is designed to provide opportunities for math teachers across our three counties and the state to learn how to engage all students in meaningful culturally responsive mathematics, to increase engagement and relevance for all students.

The series explicitly names components of CRM teaching and tasks and examines local instructional resources to identify teacher/student access to Culturally Responsive math tasks. To continue the Speaker Series learning, a writing cohort and focus group discussions are offered, as well. The goals of this series are to develop a shared understanding of culturally responsive mathematics instruction, explore ideas of how to nurture and develop students’ mathematical identities, and learn how to enhance/transform current mathematics practices and tasks to become more culturally responsive.
