Cultural Relevance in High-Quality Instructional Materials

March 14, 2022

In order to create an equitable learning environment for all students, educators must work together to dismantle systemic racism by providing grade-level, engaging, affirming, and meaningful (GLEAM™) instruction.

Learn from Jen Arberg, Director of Mathematics Leadership at UnboundEd, and Pivot Learning about how to use GLEAM™ to incorporate culturally relevant instruction in mathematics.

About Curriculum Matters

This no-cost workshop series, held in partnership with Pivot Learning,  The Education Trust-WestPartnership for Los Angeles SchoolsCalifornians Together, and the Loyola Marymount University Center for Equity for English Learners, invites folks to learn more about, and advocate for, high-quality curriculum and materials (HQIM) as a lever for educational equity.

In this workshop series, we explore HQIM and professional development for educators, with an emphasis on mathematics (given the schedule and focus of the California materials adoption process). With the expertise of our partners, we dive into the relationship between standards-aligned and user-friendly curriculum, excellent instruction for English Learners, and culturally relevant teaching.
