Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As mathematics classrooms become increasingly diverse, so too must the ways in which teachers support all learners in these classrooms. In Indigenous, migrational, and/or multilingual contexts, mathematics teaching and learning should center on culturally responsive and relevant pedagogies and assessment. Language, sometimes multiple languages, can often play a significant role in such culturally responsive and relevant pedagogies and assessment, and thus in the teaching and learning of mathematics.

In this Special Issue, we aim to engage authors and readers in a discussion of the latest research and newest directions related to supporting mathematics teaching and learning in Indigenous, migrational, and/or multilingual contexts. We wish to include papers from various contexts across the globe, to share challenges and, most importantly, successes with respect to the teaching and learning of mathematics in various contexts. In addition, we welcome papers in which the mathematics classroom setting is expanded beyond the traditional physical structure of the classroom within a school, for example, via land-based or community-based mathematics teaching and learning.

We invite colleagues to submit papers related to various themes concerning teaching and learning mathematics in Indigenous, migrational, and/or multilingual contexts, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • evidence-based practices
  • learner and/or teacher experiences
  • culturally relevant assessment
  • culturally responsive pedagogies
  • language learning
  • strength-based pedagogies
  • land-based and community-based learning
  • Indigenous ways of knowing and learning
  • minoritized and/or heritage ways of knowing and learning

We look forward to your contributions.
