Four CMP Presentations in 2020 Centered on Math Equity

The Carnegie Math Pathways were founded on principles of equity—recognizing that traditional remedial math sequences were shutting out hundreds of thousands of students each year from their college and career goals, particularly low-income students and students of color. 

Since launching a decade ago, we continue to sharpen our focus on equity. From working with tribal colleges and universities to transform their remedial math education programs to boosting success rates across demographics, this work is rich, complex, and ongoing. 

It also involves input from educators across the country both in the CMP network, and those we meet on the road at national conferences. While all of our sessions ranging from social-emotional supports to online learning touch on equity, below are some of the many presentations we’ll be making this year with an explicit equity focus. Join us for critical conversations on what we’ve learned and how we can get better together.

Building Institutional Capacity for Equity through Video Cases

This session shares innovative video cases that develop institutional capacity for equity work. Leaders and faculty engage in video-based professional learning activities to examine equity issues; reflect upon and adjust their own practice; and learn about monitoring progress toward equity goals.

Thursday, February 20, 2020
2:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Location TBD

Equitable Teaching through Observations: Creating Awareness and Changing Classroom Practices

Participants will learn about a classroom observation toolkit that uses cycles of mentoring or self-reflection to identify classroom practices that impact equity in the classroom as well as learning more broadly. This session will focus on the development and implementation of the toolkit, including the experiences of the mentor and instructor, as they identified strengths and growth areas.

Measuring Equitable Teaching Practices in the Classroom

Student participation in classroom discourse is a key indicator of an equitable classroom culture. This session will introduce a free online tool designed to provide quantitative and qualitative data to instructors on students’ participation in classroom discourse across demographics, and how these measures can guide instructional improvements.

Date and Location:
Friday, March 6, 2020

Guided Pathway to Math Success: Increase Equity & Kickstart Your College’s Degree Completion Momentum

Higher education is turning to Guided Pathways as an evidence-based way to increase college retention and completion, particularly for marginalized populations. Math is a key barrier to student success. With a goal to increase equity, shorten time to graduation and accelerate student math outcomes, Wisconsin and Washington colleges tackled the challenge as they designed their guided pathways. Hear the story from college leaders as they share their methods and lessons learned.
