On Wednesday, February 3, 2010, Lynne Godfrey, induction director for the Boston Plan for Excellence/Boston Teacher Residency (BTR), will present the next seminar in this year’s Teacher Education Initiative seminar series “Learning to Reach all Learners: Equity and Diversity in the Teaching of School Subjects.” Her talk, “Teaching Secondary Math to All Learners,” will start at 10:00 a.m. in the Tribute Room (1322).

Lynne Godfrey oversees induction support for BTR graduates in their first three years of teaching in the Boston Public Schools. Ms. Godfrey’s classroom at the King Open School in Cambridge is where Bob Moses began his pioneering work that became the Algebra Project. With her students and other teachers, Ms. Godfrey helped develop and taught the Algebra Project Transition Curriculum. She has taught grades two through eight in Cambridge and Boston and has been an adjunct professor at Wheelock College, a senior facilitator with the Algebra Project, the upper school coordinator and math coach at the Young Achievers School, and, most recently, a math coach for the Cambridge Public Schools.

I hope that you can join us for this important talk as we further explore how we can prepare teachers to work actively and effectively to intervene on inequities in opportunities to learn, with a particular focus on inequities based on based on race, ethnicity, language, and social class.
