PEER COLLABORATION CYCLES FOR TEACHERS WITH MATHEMATICS

This school year, our grade level teachers will be participating in Peer Collaboration Cycles for Mathematics. Together, they will be analyzing priority standards for their grade level and the standards of mathematical practice as they plan a lesson for a group of students from our district math curriculum.

The teachers will identify the development of students’ understanding, the connection to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, how they will support students’ exploration, data collection and more.

As a team, they will observe students’ thinking and learning while one team member teaches a lesson. After the lesson, the teachers will reflect on the experience by discussing what was observed, evidence they have and steps needed to enhance future learning experiences for our students.

Thank you to our Math Coach - Nicole Heinzl, our District Math Coach - Carrie Skelton and our District Director of Mathematics and Accelerated Pathways - Mary Mycyk for their help and guidance!
