We share our experiences and those of culturally diverse families who participated in math workshops. We tie our experiences with the importance of family engagement, in particular, viewing families as a resource to be tapped into. We do so, in hopes that other school personnel take on a similar venture.
Engaging Latino Families as Mathematicians
Geraldo Tobon and Marie Tejero Hughes
Teaching Mathematics through Multicultural Literature
Nevin Iliev and Frank D'Angelo
Enable children of all backgrounds to move beyond their current knowledge base and make culturally relevant mathematical connections.
UDL for Geometric Length Measurement
Sarah J. Selmer and Kimberly Floyd
A proactive preschool teacher differentiates instruction by using the Universal Design for Learning framework to decrease barriers that limit students' access to classroom learning.
Supporting language learners
Jo Anny Cady, Thomas E. Hodges, and Clara Brown
Incorporating these instructional practices for two mathematical tasks into lessons to support English learners gives them access to an excellent, equitable program.
Preschoolers' number sense
Sally Moomaw, Victoria Carr, Mary Boat, and David Barnett
Consider using a game-based assessment of number sense in young children, including those at risk because of socioeconomic level, disability, or the necessity of learning a second language.
