Algebra I Academy

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.

Survey

Student Survey

Please complete this survey about your prior math experiences and current reflections on your math ability and racial identity. The purpose of the survey is to better understand how students learn and how you view yourself as a mathematician. All information will be kept confidential and will not be shared with anyone outside of the study research team. Ultimately, we hope to create a great program that supports both teachers and students.  Completing this survey is very important for the continuation of our program.

Extended to September 23rd
