A former mathematics teacher and coach, Prof. Terry's research focuses on the
creation of critical race "counterspaces" as an alternative environment for the
mathematics education of high school-aged Black males. In these spaces, he explores the
impact of critical literacies on the formation of Black males' racial and
mathematics identities, as well as their social agency. In addition to consulting on the
development on single-sex educational programs, Dr. Terry works with pre-service &
in-service K-12 educators developing socially-just and anti-racist pedagogies in school
communities across urban Los Angeles and Southern California.
