Administrator Institute Course 4: Reflecting, setting goals, and making plans for mathematics improvement 2018-01-08T10:24:22+00:00

This session will provide the opportunity for administrators to reflect on the successes and challenges during the year, to consider their progress in their districts and schools, and to share their learning with colleagues from other districts. We will examine vignettes from districts to highlight the dilemmas that surface and ways that they are being addressed.

Breakfast will be provided.

Administrator Institute Course 3 Day 2: Deepening understanding of student assessment in mathematics — of and for learning 2018-01-08T10:18:54+00:00

This course focuses on assessment literacy for the instructional leader as Illinois districts implement the CCSSM and the PARCC assessment. Participants will improve their ability to use appropriate assessments for designated purposes, analyze current assessments in their schools, understand high-quality assessments that measure deeper learning, and recognize and avoid common pitfalls when supporting the use of assessment data. Two key questions structure the course: “What constitutes a high-quality assessment?” and “What are we learning from assessment data, and how can we use it to support improved student learning?”

Breakfast will be provided.

Administrator Institute Course 2: Classroom instruction that works — the leadership perspective 2018-01-08T10:05:50+00:00

Administrators are responsible for supporting teachers to engage in powerful practices and create environments that promote student learning. This course draws upon the work of Marzano, Pickering and Pollack to support administrators to use research-based teaching strategies to support teachers to engage in improved instruction.  A focus on mathematics with connections to other content areas will be explored.

Lunch will be provided.

Administrator Institute for Newly Participating Administrators: Course 1: Supporting effective mathematics teaching and learning — from Principles to Actions 2017-10-03T16:24:41+00:00

To improve student learning of mathematics, we must create classrooms where all students are actively engaged, become mathematical problem-solvers, and discuss and make sense of their solutions. This will require teachers, and the administrators who support and supervise them, to work together. In this course, we will explore the guiding principles articulated by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) in Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All, especially the Teaching and Learning Principle, the eight Mathematics Teaching Practices that research indicates must be consistent components of every lesson, and concrete teacher and student actions. Participants will build their understanding of the Mathematics Teaching Practices and how they can (through supervision and other supports) promote teacher learning to help better engage students in learning.

GOALS
The CMP3 professional development is designed to provide implementing teachers with the opportunity to:
  Develop an understanding of the philosophy and goals of the CMP3 curriculum
  Explore the connections between CMP and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics
  Explore the mathematical ideas in the selected unit and the implications for practice
  Collaborate with colleagues in similar grade levels
  Deepen their content and pedagogical content knowledge

DESCRIPTION
During the sessions, teachers will learn about the curricular materials and resources, engage in problem-based investigations, prepare for implementation in their classrooms, and explore high-quality instruction. They will engage in activities to promote reflection and professional growth.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
• Please bring the CMP Teacher’s Guide and Student Book for the unit being explored at the session.
• Lunch will be provided.
• CPDUs will be awarded upon completion.
