Supporting Teachers Using an Integrated High School Mathematics Curriculum in Urban Schools, Courses One, Two, and Three
|This project aims to bring new perspective, mathematical content, and instructional skills to the teaching of mathematics at the high school level. It is designed as a one-year professional development program in mathematics for high school teachers starting the use of course one or continuing use from course one to course two or course two to course three of an integrated mathematics curriculum with student-centered instruction.|
In this project, the teachers participate as members of school-based teams. Each team is comprised of two or more teachers from a Milwaukee Public School high school or a southeastern Wisconsin high school where the use of integrated mathematics curricula is underway or in the planning stages.
Through this project, participants will:
The telecommunications component, ongoing throughout the summer, school year, and beyond, will ensure and support the sustained involvement of all participants and staff as they dialogue frequently on the infusion of an integrated mathematics curriculum and facilitate the sharing of instructional strategies. A major component of the program will be teacher preparation and ongoing practice scoring MPS Learning Proficiencies assessments for their own students and implementing intervention strategies.
