Learning Theory-Driven Professional Development - Stories from Two MSP Projects


"Learning Theory-Driven Professional Development (LTDPD) empowers teachers to engage students in learning experiences derived from research about how students learn. Two MSP projects are implementing forms of LTDPD. The Arizona Mathematics Partnership is a targeted middle school mathematics MSP project that involves Scottsdale, Chandler-Gilbert, and Glendale Community Colleges and 7 school districts in the Scottsdale area. Making Mathematical Reasoning Explicit is a K-12 mathematics institute project that develops a cadre of teachers to serve as school- and district-based intellectual leaders and master teachers in rural eastern Washington and northern Idaho schools. Both projects are guided by mathematics learning theories. Session participants will learn about LTDPD, the results of prior research efforts, and how these two MSP projects are utilizing LTDPD."
