Math Leadership Teams Professional Development
| ITTIP collaborated with the Cook-Cole College of Arts and Sciences at Longwood University to provide an elementary mathematics professional development opportunity on campus on January 11, 2018. In attendance were 131 elementary administrators, teachers, and mathematics specialists from 14 school divisions interested in learning more about how to create effective math leadership teams at their elementary schools. Topics for the day included student mindset, rich performance tasks, discourse, and classroom norms.
The idea for the workshop came from a discussion that Dr. Sharon Emerson-Stonnell, Professor of Mathematics, and Dr. Paula Leach, ITTIP Director, had regarding their desire to expand on what has been happening with their Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) grants for the past three years. Instructors for the workshop were expert teachers and mathematics leaders from the Virginia Council for Teachers of Mathematics (VCTM). Over the past several years VCTM, in conjunction with the Mathematics Specialist program across the state, have been making a concerted effort to reach administrators and work with them in identifying and promoting effective mathematics instruction in elementary schools.
