Check out this blog entry that Marta wrote with her colleague Annie. This blog is part of an ongoing project focused on equitable mathematics classrooms.

              Marta's Current Read 

I just started this book and I have so many new connections and ideas to think about as I continue on my journey to be better understand culturally responsive mathematics. This quote from the book should motivate you to get this book on your reading pile. " We propose re-envisioning mathematics classrooms to be places that embrace children as whole human beings, in light of who they are in their families and communities outside of school and nurturing that humanity in and through mathematical instruction. " Page 5

Can't wait to get to this one. After reading, Horn's book Strength in Numbers, I quickly purchased this book and put it on my pile.

I read this book with a group of colleagues. The authors have offered the reader many actionable steps that will increase access for multilingual learners. I enjoyed listening to this podcast ( Sum of It All- Season 7) after reading each chapter.

Polly's Current Read

I reread this book every year.  The ideas always cause me to feel reaffirmed and inspire me to do better.  Every sentence is jam-packed with important ideas about what an equitable mathematics classroom can be and how to go about it.  She sites research, uses vignettes, has charts and quotes from prominent math educators and thinkers.  Her ideas are visionary and should be the least we do.

On Polly's  " To Read Pile!"

After reading, Safir's book Street Data,  I am looking forward to digging into the ideas about equity and leadership.
