The Calculus Project
“…math teachers, you can tell your students that the president says they need Algebra.”
President Barack Obama,
at Booker T. Washington High School Commencement, May 17, 2011
An excellent example of an equity program that provides opportunity for students of color to complete Honors and AP Calculus. Students in this program participate in project-based learning and collaborative activities that demand their best effort. The expectations are high and so is their motivation to succeed. Created by Dr. Adrian Mims Sr. as one way to address the under representation of students of color in high level math classes. For more information about The Calculus Project read the brochure or email Dr. Adrian B. Mims Sr.
Teen Racial Justice Curriculum
Lisa Graustein has generously provided Equity & Expectations℠ permission to post this curriculum she developed for young people. The curriculum aims to go beyond teaching about structural racism and personal stories. Lisa hopes “…this curriculum will help participants to move beyond the recognition of privilege and the sharing of pain and hurt, towards invested reflection, analysis, and action”.
