I think you probably have many of the complexities of the learning problem written down. I think emphasizing/breaking-down those complexities is most important before suggesting a larger training solution.

What is "constructive" learning? Why does math lend itself naturally to this?
We didn't have time for you to elaborate on this in class but make sure it's addressed in your writing

David Barel — Simplified Argument Critique: Audience

Is implementing CRT in math classrooms different form other classes? If there are specific differences that lead to it being more prone for mistakes, that might lead to interesting questions.

Allena Berry - This could be your research question.

Sarah White — Simplified Argument Critique: Mistakes

Sarah: Focus on identifying the mistakes, what are teachers' individual biases and mindsets and how do they affect what these teachers learn from CRT training? Or is there a set of more general, non-individualized problems?

Sarah White — Simplified Argument Critique: Solution

Trey: Will different teachers need different supports in this learning experience?

Allena Berry — Simplified Argument Critique: Mistakes

Teacher mistake: Deficit perspective (ie "Your culture is wrong"
Why do they make that mistake: They don't have these concepts (No, they don't have the proper mindset)

Kelly D'Angelo — Simplified Argument Critique: Research question

In consideration of what I wrote before- why might teachers feel lack of efficacy in teaching CRT? Is it a culturally different issue and less an "I don't know HOW to teach CRT" issue?

3 years ago

Allena Berry — Simplified Argument Critique: Research question

Could a potential research question be:
What are the features of a teacher training program that allows teachers to feel confident in implementing CRT in their math classroom?

3 years ago

Trey Smith - I'm on board with this. I am definitely wondering myself what supports / learning conditions teachers might need in a space where they are learning about and to use the CRT framework.

Kelly D'Angelo — Simplified Argument Critique: Research question

What assumption does this make about the population of the teachers? Are they white, black, green? Rich, poor? Or does that even matter? If it does matter, then perhaps your problem can be how to approach CRT with a diverse group of teachers OR a group of teachers who come from a different background than students

#watchout to make sure you are using learning theories in whatever you give teachers as a part of your solution (ie should it be just a lecture?)

Sarah White — Simplified Argument Critique: Solution

We need to pull out all of the complexity that is part of the training program

Kelly D'Angelo — Simplified Argument Critique: Research question

You are listing a lot of demographic factors ( I love demographics!). Is it possible that you can shift your focus to HOW teachers can integrate the demographic factors into HOW they do CRT? Or something like that?

Sarah Gates — Simplified Argument Critique: Mistakes

The reason your teacher training program is so important is that you cannot just give them a piece of paper with "how to use CRT in math" best. It's complicated, so the problem involves how and why so that your training program is successful. The problem is important because poor CRT can be detrimental.

Sarah White — Simplified Argument Critique: Task

"Culture is ever-changing" is the hardest part about teaching with CRT methodology

3 years ago

Allena Berry — Simplified Argument Critique: Mistakes

Good answer to Matt's question with the mistakes that learners make:
(1) culture is ever changing
(2) hard to identify with students (teacher identity)
(3) resolving conflict

3 years ago

Allena Berry - You answer Matt's question by saying #1 is most important, so you need to focus at least your practical solution on #1.

Sarah White — Simplified Argument Critique: Task

Chris: how do you do math talk in a way that acknowledges and allows cultural variation?

(This is a very different task, but a related implication)

3 years ago

Kelly D'Angelo — General

Chris- The hard thing
Identity- how do you ID w students?
Culture- changing and different understandings and how ascertain? all cultures need to be relevant and represented
Conflict- how you do resolve conflict?
Discourse- how do you address math talk?

If teaching CRT is still really hard after being told how to do it, then that's a more interesting LS question

Trey Smith — General

Matt: What is complicated for teachers to teach math using the CRT framework?

3 years ago

Trey Smith - I think I was thinking along these lines myself: how do math teachers respond to/make sense of CRT framework?

3 years ago

Kelly D'Angelo — General

End goal= Students learning math in CRT framework
Chris- the hard part is getting teachers to do it
Matt- may be a policy problem
Matt- if doing CRT is complicated- becomes more interesting LS problem and want to know what is complicated for teachers to DO CRT?

3 years ago

Kelly D'Angelo — Simplified Argument Critique: Research question

So I think what you are saying- is that CRT already exists and we need to get teachers to implement it. So- your idea is HOW? do we best teach teachers the CRT framework?

In season 4 of The Wire, Mr. Prez tries to use students' (from the Baltimore housing projects) backgrounds to teach math in the classroom. Prob not pedagogically based... but it seemed to work on TV :)

Sarah White — Simplified Argument Critique: Solution

Difference between training and a tool. If you can just give instruction manual to someone, then is that a good learning problem?

How does the training lead to self-efficacy?

3 years ago

David Barel — Simplified Argument Critique: Mistakes

Are the learners the teachers? If the answer is yes, is it a matter of teaching the teachers how to use Cultural Relevant instruction?

Looks like you have a solution in your problem definition #lookout

Sarah White — Simplified Argument Critique: Mistakes

What is the classroom model that you refer to?

3 years ago

Allena Berry — Simplified Argument Critique: Solution

Somewhere, make sure you have a framework for why adapting the CRT framework for math would be effective. #warning

Wanting and not knowing how isn't really an action; what are they DOING as a result of this want and lack of knowledge?
