What Does it Mean to be Smart in Math Classrooms? From the Perspective of Black Learners
Friday, November 12, 2021,  11:00 AM-12:00 Noon.
Suite 128, 6475 Alvarado Rd.
Also available via Zoom: 87965705590

As an indoor SDSU event, masks will be required during the talk inside Suite 128. There will be no eating. However, we will immediately move outside at noon, when the talk is over, to eat lunch.

Abstract: The talk addresses the question “How do Black learners describe what it means to be smart in a summer mathematics program." The study is a multi-case study of 5 fifth-grade Black learners. In the talk I describe both the different conceptions learners had as well as the complexity of those conceptions. Implications of these work include methodological considerations for capturing student’s conceptions (epistemology) and the heterogeneity within studying Black learners.

Charles Wilkes is a postdoctoral researcher at CRMSE working on the Math Persistence through Inquiry and Equity (MPIE) project. His work focuses on the experiences of Black learners in mathematics and equitable teaching practices. Specifically, his work has focused on Black learners’ conceptions of smartness, how Black learners are positioned in mathematics courses, and how teachers signal messages about smartness through their practice.
