Making Cultural Assets Count…

How can we help students do better in math? Maybe we can shine the light on student assets during class instead of overwriting student autonomy and creativity by using canned curriculum. We should encourage students to experiment, explore, and express their unique approaches—especially students who have distinguished themselves by coming from a community with exceptional autonomy and improvisational expertise, like the Yucatec Maya students in this study.

Attend or Zoom in to my talk about my research, Making Cultural Assets Count: Funds of math knowledge in a Yucatec Maya village and middle school. It happens as part of the SRJC Arts and Lecture Series on Monday, September 24, 2018 in the SRJC Newman Auditorium from 12:00 to 1:00pm. It counts a PD flex at SRJC, too.
