Equitable Teaching Practices in Math


Presenters seek feedback on an observational instrument designed to identify preservice teachers’ abilities to identify equitable teaching practices.

9:45 am to 11:45 am
2014 Session Types: 
Feedback Session (Work in Development)

The original version of the Mathematical Quality and Equity (MQE) video codes (Goffney, 2010; LMT, 2010) were developed as a section of the Mathematical Quality and Instruction observational instrument developed by the Learning Mathematics for Teaching Project at the University of Michigan.

The Road to Scientific Literacy: How Target Inquiry Is Improving Instruction and Student Achievement in High School Chemistry

Unfortunately until now I have not found a program like this for chemistry. The reason I am so excited about the program is that, even though I believe in inquiry-based learning, adopting it in the chemistry classroom has been difficult for me.... I was never taught how to teach chemistry in an inquiry-based atmosphere.... No teacher is an island. This master’s program will not only help the teachers that go through the program but as the word spreads about the units that are developed, more and more chemistry teachers will start using inquiry-based learning.
