CRDG + DEVELOPING TEACHING EXPERTISE PROJECT (DTE)

The Curriculum Research and Development Group at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa College of Education partnered with the Developing Teaching Expertise project at the University of Michigan School of Education to produce professional development modules for in-service elementary mathematics teachers for broad dissemination.

Additional information about the NSF-funded project and materials can be found on the University of Michigan project website: http://sites.soe.umich.edu/devteam/

What are Developing Teaching Expertise @ modules?

DTE professional development modules offer PD facilitators and professional learning communities (PLCs) rich multimedia materials to use with groups of practicing teachers. They provide opportunities to learn from leading mathematics teacher educators about key topics in elementary mathematics education.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

GEOMETRIC MEASUREMENT AND SPATIAL REASONING IN ELEMENTARY MATHEMATICS TEACHING (DEV-TE@M MODULE 3)

Geometric Measurement and Spatial Reasoning in Elementary Mathematics Teaching is a professional development (PD) opportunity for practicing elementary teachers that is being offered in the 2017–2018 school year. This PD presents opportunities for teachers to develop professional knowledge and practices in four areas to support student learning of measurement:

  • Mathematics: concepts, methods, and tools used in linear, 2D, and 3D measurement,including a look at these ideas and skills within and across the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics
  • Student thinking: understanding the development of children’s reasoning about linear, 2D, and 3D measurement through examining research-based learning trajectories
  • Teaching: using learning trajectories in assessing student thinking and analyzing curricula
  • Learning from practice: studying learning trajectories of one’s own students through the use of anecdotal note-taking workshops, in which participants discuss samples of students’ work, observational notes, and other records of practice in collaborative groups.
