Refining a Model with Tools to Develop Math Professional Development Leaders:...

2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8

This video features a Research-Practice Partnership (RPP) between Stanford University and a school district to support teacher and student engagement with the district mathematics curriculum and vision for teaching and learning. To address this problem of practice, the RPP is applying design-based implementation research to adapt, implement, and study interrelated models of mathematics professional development and teacher leader preparation. The district’s mission is to provide “each and every student the quality instruction and equitable support required to thrive in the 21st century.”  Two goals to help achieve that mission are:

  1. Access and Equity: Make social justice a reality by ensuring every student has access to high-quality teaching and learning.
  2. Student Achievement: Create learning environments … that foster highly engaged and joyful learners and that support every student reaching his or her potential. (district website)

The RPP is working to achieve these goals by developing district capacity to conduct school-based mathematics professional development. The Stanford research/professional development team is working with district mathematics PD coordinators to prepare and support teacher leaders to lead PD workshops at their schools. The video illustrates the nature of the teacher leader preparation workshops, teacher leaders’ site-based PD workshops, and classroom instruction.
