Research & Clarify

Getting Started!

During the first 6 meetings the research team determines a research question, develops a theory of action, chooses a math topic to explore, and determines a mathematical goal and an equity goal for their research lesson. Below include links to agendas teams can use to guide them through these steps of the research lesson planning cycle, as well as blog posts that share some of our key learnings from engaging in the process ourselves.
