Equitable Teaching for Young Children in Central Mexico (CIES 2018 presentation)

This presentation was presented as part of the panel, The Equity Initiative: Advancing Equity at the Classroom Level, at CIES 2018.

More research is needed on equity in educational inputs or processes in developed and developing countries alike. Some studies show that supportive, well-organized, and instructionally-rich teaching practices enhance children’s learning and development across various classroom contexts. Yet the ways these “generic” aspects of teaching are culturally motivated and communicated within classrooms also matter. This presentation defines equitable teaching as the combination of cultural and generic dimensions, and explore hypotheses that generic aspects of teaching quality are culturally instantiated.
