    Hi,

    I teach 6th grade math. Does anyone has any ideas of how I can maintain diversity when teaching math? My principal just informed all the 6th grade teachers in our school of this and she wants a typed report of how we are going to maintain this.

    Any ideas?

    What do you mean by maintaining diversity? Differentiating instruction?

    Are you talking about racial diversity?

    haha, I just wasn't sure what was meant by maintaining diversity in math!
    I don't think we're going to get an answer though since Janie asked to be unregistered.

    I think you're right, Beth. That was one peculiar post, too.

    She posted in on the thread about cheating on the CSET. She argued with the admin for a little bit and then asked to be unregistered...and now it says "guest" where it didn't before under her name.
