EDUC 568 - Critical Mathematics Teaching

(Same as EDUC 568B .) Prerequisite, this course is for students who have been given admission in the Teacher Credential and/or Master of Arts in Teaching Program. This course prepares teacher candidates in the methods of teaching mathematics through a critical multicultural education framework. Candidates will engage in doing mathematics and learn effective ways to design, enact, assess, and reflect on instruction that aligns with the new state standards and leverage and build on children’s mathematical knowledge and their languages, culture, and communities. The content focus will include learning theories and research on the development of students’ mathematical thinking, instruction that promote students’ mathematical development by teaching through problem solving, and models of culturally responsive teaching that promote student access and agency in learning mathematics with understanding. Technology will be used to analyze, reflect, and revise instruction based on student learning. Some fieldwork experience is embedded in the course. Letter grade. Fee: $75. (Offered fall semester.) 3 credits
