CRDG + Developing Teaching Expertise @ Mathematics (Dev-TE@M)

The Curriculum Research and Development Group is partnering with the Developing Teaching Expertise @ Mathematics (Dev-TE@M) at the University of Michigan School of Education to pilot test their practice-focused professional development modules for in-service elementary mathematics teachers and produce the final version of the Dev-TE@M materials for dissemination.

More information about the Dev-TE@M project and materials can be found on the University of Michigan project website: http://www.umich.edu/~devteam/ and more information about the CRDG collaboration will be posted here soon.

WHAT IS THE DEV-TE@M?

Dev-TE@M professional development modules use multimedia materials to provide practicing teachers an opportunity to learn from leading mathematics teacher educators about key topics in elementary mathematics education.

DEV-TE@M MODULES

Each module provides elementary teacher groups with content for ten engaging, practice focused 90-minute sessions Three modules are available : fractions, mathematical practices, and geometric measurement.

Integrated content integrates four core areas: knowing mathematics for teaching, enhancing skill with teaching practices, understanding students ways of thinking, and learning to learn from one’s own teaching.

4 core elements button

Learn from leading mathematics teacher educators by discussing their explanations of key ideas, seeing their modeling of practices, and learning from their responses to questions from practicing teachers. Modules integrate opportunities for participants to learn with colleagues focusing on materials from their own teaching.

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 2016–2017 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.

Planning is underway. We expect the PD to be offered in Honolulu for O‘ahu participants, and to include one or two neighbor island participant groups. Please check back here for updates.
