beatty Ruth Beatty

Ruth teaches the mathematics methods course for preservice P/J teacher candidates in the Faculty of Education at Lakehead University (Orillia). Currently Ruth is working with members of Anishinaabe and Cree communities and educators from Ontario school boards to research the connections between Indigenous ways of knowing mathematics and the Western mathematics found in the Ontario curriculum. The goal of this research, funded by a SSHRC Insight Development Grant and by the Ontario Ministry of Education, is to collaboratively design culturally responsive mathematics instruction for First Nations students, and to learn from and incorporate Indigenous pedagogical perspectives in inclusive classroom settings.
