IM K–5 Math as a Support for Culturally Responsive Pedagogy

When developing IM K–5 Math, the authors wanted to make sure that all students—regardless of race, ethnicity, language, gender, ability, and socioeconomic background—could see themselves in the curriculum. During this presentation, Dr. LaToya Byrd, Director of Professional Learning Implementation and Talent, will share IM’s stance on supporting culturally responsive pedagogy (CRP), highlight specific design features that support teachers implementing CRP in their classrooms, offer an opportunity for teachers and leaders to review the curriculum with a CRP lens, and reflect on how it can benefit teachers and students.
