“How do I work with my newcomer students?”: Labels and their Implications for Teaching
Presenters: Gladys Krause & Melissa Adams-Corral
It is undeniable that working with students always teaches us something, and many of us feel we often learn more than the students from our work together. In this webinar, we want to share learning experiences working with students in two U.S. high schools. We center our discussion on what we learned about our instruction of mathematics, the curriculum in place for teaching these students, the labels used to place students in the classrooms, and the dreams they are working towards. Specifically, we interrogate the labels newcomers and English Learners and the terms’ power to shape teacher perceptions and expectations, as well as students’ experiences. We also explore what it might mean to listen to these students and center their thinking and desires at school. This webinar invites the audience to reflect on the implications of labels in education and, more specifically, in teaching mathematics in both tracked and de-tracked schools.
