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.

 

(One full day — October 2017 — ISBE Credit approved — Course #1721)
