In 2018, NCTM published the first of three books in their Catalyzing Change series. Across the three texts, they call for the dismantling of all forms of inequitable grouping structures from early childhood and elementary school (NCTM 2020a) to middle school (NCTM 2020b) and high school (NCTM 2018). NCTM (2020a) asserted—

Any ability grouping in mathematics education is an inequitable structure that perpetuates privilege for a few and marginality for others. Ability grouping practices often occur with good intentions; we want to understand children’s learning needs and then tailor the content,

Mathematics standards and practices highlight the vital role that language plays in mathematics education. However, there remains a common misconception that mathematics is somehow language-free or less linguistically demanding than other content areas. This qualitative study describes an intervention implemented in six elementary mathematics methods courses. The intervention was designed to attune prospective teachers’ noticing to the language modalities and supports in mathematics teaching and learning. The intervention began with an observation tool that prospective teachers completed in their field placement classrooms. This article classifies prospective teachers’ noticings and explicates how these noticing became a pedagogical catalyst for further learning and discussion in subsequent mathematics methods classes.

February is considered the love month. Wondering how this got started? There are many theories. Valentine’s Day itself may have resulted from a poem by the English poet Geoffrey Chaucer in 1375 titled “Parliament of Foules." Let’s focus on the meaning of love as a verb: to hold dear, take pleasure in, or thrive in (Merriam-Webster, n.d.). Sadly, far too few students love mathematics and instead feel anxiety or other negative emotions. We must do better. In this month of love, let’s focus on ways we can ensure that each and every child has the opportunities to

When learning is virtual and students’ webcams are turned off, the ways that we interacted in an in-person classroom fall short. These six strategies for hearing from all students during whole-group instruction and small-group work honor students’ need to keep their webcams off.
