Event description

Description

What are the challenges of teaching mathematics in an inclusive classroom?

What are the mathematical competencies of deaf learners?

How can the mathematical insights of deaf learners be included in classroom activity?

According to the ableist world-view, the able-bodied are the norm in society and disability is an unfortunate failing, a disadvantage that must be overcome. Within education, ableism results in institutional and personal prejudice against learners with disabilities, and has a drastic effect on approaches to teaching. The CAPTeaM project brings together researchers from the UK and Brazil and investigates how ableist perspectives impact on the teaching of mathematics.

In this first workshop of what we envisage as a series in our three-year study, we will work together on tasks which draw on realistic situations that reflect the challenges of mathematics teaching in classrooms that include learners who are deaf or with a hearing impairment. We will also discuss findings from our analysis of trials of these tasks in the UK, Brazil and elsewhere and conclude with insights on and recommendations for practice.

We hope that this workshop will shed some light on these big questions!
