Preparing Teacher Candidates for Common Core State Standards in Mathematics: The Sequel

Tuesday, December 15 | 2:00-3:30pm EST

With support from the Learning First Alliance’s Get It Right campaign, AACTE's two-part webinar series highlight educator preparation programs that are effectively implementing strategies to develop teachers ready to prepare PK-12 students for Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This second webinar will feature recent findings on preparing mathematics teachers to teach the standards as a sequel to a major forum at AACTE’s 66th Annual Meeting in 2014. Many programs have struggled to gather necessary information to make changes aligned with the CCSS and face challenges to meet the standards’ call for significant, deep mathematics focus in the early grades, to eliminate a vast majority of topics covered in current state standards, and to completely redesign secondary math courses. This webinar will examine current efforts to redesign secondary mathematics preparation programs so that they correspond to the pedagogical shifts of the CCSS.
