Engaging in Culturally Relevant Math Tasks by Matthews, Jones, and Parker, is an excellent learning community resource.
This book helps teachers rethink and refine mathematical thinking to provide challenging, engaged student learning experiences.
Example, how does 'real world' relate to your students perspective?
Focusing on mathematical conceptual knowledge, relevance, and agency, this book provides tools, anecdotes, and practices for culturally sustaining elementary math instruction.
Research shows expectations influence outcomes.
What are your expectations for you and your students or young library patrons? Are they high or low, in between?
The book, 'Expect the Most, Provide the Best: How High Expectations, Outstanding Instruction, & Curricular Innovations Help All Students Succeed By Robert L. Green, PhD., provides a guide focusing on expectations and how they can affect learning outcomes, especially for Black and Brown students.
Primarily for teachers, this book also works well for those in library or community organizations working with our K-12 young people. The book lists resources, voices from the field, reframing mindsets, and accountability.
Library managers, parents, principals, teachers, and community workers, use this book to reflect on and create discussions around what high expectations look like from your perspective and how to change a 'poverty of spirit' mindset to one of persistence and limitless potential.
