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.
