Mathematics teacher educators often feel challenged when they discuss equity-related topics with pre-service and in-service teachers. To address this challenge, the AMTE Board of Directors chose equity and mathematics teacher education as the focus of the first book in the AMTE Professional Book series. The book, Cases for Teacher Educators: Facilitating Conversations about Inequities in Mathematics Classrooms, is a collection of cases centered on equity as a vehicle to prepare MTEs to discuss inequities in their mathematics methods, content, and professional development courses. Each chapter includes a case accompanied by three reflective commentaries. In this webinar we will provide an overview of the book through a sample of some of the dilemmas faced by the case authors, and the strategies offered by the authors and commentators for creating inclusive and equitable mathematics classrooms. Attendees will also have an opportunity to read abbreviated versions of two chapters and to share their thoughts.
