Webinar promoSession Description
What you pay attention to in your classroom (or the way you “notice” moments of classroom life) guides your instructional practice. Expanding what you notice about students, their sociopolitical histories and mathematics can support you in knowing how to enact more equitable and just mathematics teaching. In this PD, we will build on Dr. Robert Berry’s framework for equitable teaching practices and describe noticing practices that support equitable and just mathematics classrooms.

About the Presenter
Victoria Hand is an Associate Professor of Education at the University of Colorado Boulder. She focuses on issues of culture, learning, identity, and equity in the mathematics classroom. Her research examines the development of opportunities to learn in mathematics classrooms and how these opportunities are negotiated differently by groups of students from various ethnic, racial, linguistic, and social backgrounds. She draws on situative and critical perspectives to analyze how the process of negotiation is influenced by the system of activity within a given classroom, and by broader sociopolitical processes and structures. Her teaching interests span a range of areas including equity in mathematics education, theories of mathematics teaching and learning, the design of classroom learning environments, and the analysis of classroom interaction.
