Locating Praxis for Equity in Mathematics: Lessons From and for Professional Development
In this article, the authors examine how particular lived experiences influenced negotiation of the figured worlds participants inhabit and how that negotiation might contribute to the ways in which they took up certain issues, in this case equity in mathematics education. The authors identified two strands that ran through the findings: As teachers came to use a multicultural lens on their mathematics classrooms, they interacted with the figured world of equitable mathematics pedagogy in different ways; In considering sites for praxis, those teachers with more experience in multicultural education looked in and beyond their classrooms for change.

An Examination of Black Science Teacher Educators’ Experiences with Multicultural Education, Equity, and Social Justice
This article examines the experiences of Black science teacher educators when they attempted to include multicultural education, equity, and social justice in their teaching. The findings reveal that the participants shared challenges that occur in the academy when they dealt with their Blackness as a faculty member and attempted to infuse multicultural science education, equity, and social justice in their classes. Many of these faculty members decided to incorporate multicultural education, equity, and social justice in their courses. Furthermore, some of them have attempted and stopped due to student evaluations and the need to gain promotion and tenure. The authors suggest that these shared experiences can assist other science educators by understanding Black faculty members’ struggles with the infusion of multicultural science education, equity, and social justice in their teaching.

Culturally Sustaining Pedagogy: A Needed Change in Stance, Terminology, and Practice
The author has been inspired by Gloria Ladson-Billings' article which described what it means to make teaching and learning relevant and responsive to the languages, literacies, and cultural practices of students across categories of difference and (in)equality. However, this article offers the term and stance of culturally sustaining pedagogy as an alternative. The author believes that this alternative embodies some of the best research and practice in the resource pedagogy tradition and as a term that supports the value of our multiethnic and multilingual present and future. Culturally sustaining pedagogy seeks to perpetuate and foster—to sustain—linguistic, literate, and cultural pluralism as part of the democratic project of schooling.

Pathways to Critical Consciousness: A First-Year Teacher’s Engagement With Issues of Race and Equity
In this article, the author asserts that critical racial consciousness is cultivated by context and performed—and often performed differently in different settings. The author considers the ways in which a White first-year teacher performs critical racial consciousness in the context of her urban fifth-grade classroom. The findings of this study fall into three themes—racial identity reflection, awareness of inequity, and challenges to engagement. The author asserts that “discourses of possibility” related to White racial consciousness can be encouraged in teacher preparation courses. The author concludes the article with implications for preservice teacher education and in-service teacher development.
