A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction: Resources and guidance to support Black, LatinX, and Multilingual students to thrive in grades 6-8
A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction is an integrated approach to mathematics centering Black, Latinx, and Multilingual students in grades 6-8, by addressing barriers to math equity, and aligning instruction to grade-level priority standards. The Pathway is designed to offer guidance and resources for educators as they plan their curriculum, while also offering opportunities for ongoing self-reflection as they seek to develop an anti-racist math practice. The toolkit “strides” serve as multiple on-ramps for educators as they navigate the individual and collective journey from equity to anti-racism.
Recognizing the importance of helping educators to identify essential content for the 2020-21 school year, our team used Student Achievement Partners’ Instructional Priority Content in Mathematics as a foundational guide for sharpening our content focus (the “what”) for this toolkit. We also recognized that educators need support in shifting their instructional practices (the “how”) to provide meaningful access to priority content while ensuring that those practices are research- and assets-based, and culturally responsive.

About this Toolkit: This toolkit was developed by a team of teachers, instructional coaches, researchers, professional development providers, and curriculum writers with expertise in mathematics education, English language development, and culturally responsive pedagogy.
