Bringing Social Justice to the Upper Elementary Math Classroom: From Student Questions to Taking Action
Presenters: Tonya Gau Bartell, Cathery Yeh, Mathew D. Felton-Koestler, Robert Q Berry III

Teaching Math for Social Justice (TMSJ) is much more than the lessons teachers might implement in their classrooms. It is about the relationships they build with and among students; the teaching practices that help them do that; and the goals to develop positive social, cultural, and mathematics identities—as authors, actors, and doers. During this workshop, educators will engage in the use of a social justice mathematics lesson framework to examine ways to design lessons to teach mathematics for and with social justice.
