About the Author(s)

Megan Franke, a professor of education at UCLA, supports and studies teachers as they make use of research based information about Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI), the development of children’s mathematical thinking. She works with students, teachers, and schools to challenge inequities and create opportunities for each and every student to learn with understanding.

Elham Kazemi is a professor of mathematics education at the University of Washington. She works alongside teachers to create thriving mathematical classrooms centered on children’s mathematical thinking. She is deeply committed to building university-school partnerships that tackle social and academic inequities and create strong professional learning communities for teachers to learn from and with their students.

Angela Chan Turrou, a clinical faculty member in the UCLA Teacher Education Program, works to support teachers across their careers to challenge narrow ideas of what it means to do math in school and create meaningful classroom experiences grounded in children’s mathematical thinking.
