TLL 2433 - MATH METHODS FOR PreK-4 STUDENTS
This course investigates methods for teaching mathematics to elementary school children of diverse backgrounds. The course is intended to contribute to your development as a critical, equity-oriented, anti-racist, reflective, and effective elementary teacher of mathematics. We will use readings, assignments, projects, and our classroom discussions to facilitate your understanding of important issues related to equitable mathematics teaching and learning. We will focus on topics such as number sense, growth mindset, mathematics identity, equitable pedagogical and assessment practices, culturally relevant pedagogy, social justice pedagogy, and building relationships with students and their families. You will work in small groups, partnerships, and individually in class and for your assignments and projects. Our class community will support each other's progress toward the course learning goals.
