Menus are a powerful tool for providing students with choice and can lead to greater student engagement, but they may also unintentionally contain biases and inequities. This session will explore these inequities so educators are able to spot and fix these issues. Intended for math and science teachers from grades 3-12. Multiple example menus will be provided to allow teachers to explore content from their courses. Menus will be examine for inequities related to language proficiency, culture, race, ethnicity, and socio-economic status. We won’t solve all the world’s problems in this session but we will get started and begin the conversation.
