Observing Teaching in a Field of Whiteness: Community College Mathematics Classrooms at Minority-Serving Institutions as Sites for Equitable Practices

Speakers: Vilma Mesa, Chauntee Thrill, Anne Cawley, J. Luke Wood, Eboni Zamani-Gallaher, and Helen Burn

In this session, we will describe an observation instrument that describes the quality of mathematical instruction in community college mathematics classrooms and of the relational practices that are used to convey messages to students who are underrepresented in STEM fields that they belong in the mathematics classroom with the goal to showcase equitable practices.
