Mathematics education in the United States can reproduce social inequalities whether schools use either qbasic-skillsq curricula to prepare mainly low-income students of color for low-skilled service jobs or qstandards-basedq curricula to ready students for knowledge-intensive positions. And working for fundamental social change and rectifying injustice are rarely included in any mathematics curriculum. Reading and Writing the World with Mathematics argues that mathematics education should prepare students to investigate and critique injustice, and to challenge, in words and actions, oppressive structures and acts. Based on teacher-research, the book provides a theoretical framework and practical examples for how mathematics educators can connect schooling to a larger sociopolitical context and concretely teach mathematics for social justice.An introduction to discourse analysis: Theory and method.
