Black Liberatory Pedagogy & Algebra I

Black Teacher Collaborative has partnered with Georgia’s Clayton County Public Schools district to serve 20-25 Black Algebra I teachers who teach in predominantly Black schools.  This immersive learning experience couples BTC’s Black Liberatory Pedagogy (BLP) alongside Common Core curriculum to expand what it means to have a “Black Math Identity.”

Participants will learn new Black liberatory skills, knowledge, and mindsets (S/K/Ms) to implement in their Algebra I instruction with Black Algebra I students. They can also expect to build relationships and receive social and emotional support as Black teachers through our “Communities of Practice.” Ultimately, participants will reflect on and re-imagine themselves as Black math teachers for Black Students. Program components include a summer immersive experience, individual and cohort coaching, and high level BLP curriculum training.
