Learning to Teach for the Success of Underserved Students

Summary

At the heart of teaching underserved students is getting math class to be a place where students routinely work on mathematics. More than just motivating students, this is about student identity and agency, building trust, teaching students how to learn, and instruction that delivers on its promise that work will lead to progress. We acknowledge that student achievement is the ultimate goal, but we define success in terms of engagement in math class and we use collectively planned laboratory classes to examine how the identification of specific instructional goals and the elaboration of those goals in instructional plans can provide a valuable resource for making this component of the work of teaching more readily observable, study-able, and improvable.
