Leadership Content Knowledge and Mathematics Instructional Quality RETA invites a few more MSPs

Leadership Content Knowledge and Mathematics Instructional Quality RETA is inviting a few more MSPs to take part in their research and technical assistance project. There are only a few spaces left for MSPs who would like to provide their K-8 principals with a high-quality professional development course, Lenses on Learning.

This large scale, research and technical assistance project investigates the nature of elementary and middle school principals' knowledge of mathematics and beliefs about mathematics teaching and learning through the construct of Leadership Content Knowledge (LCK) and its effect on their practices of classroom observation and teacher supervision. Phase I yields diagnostic information about the principals' level of LCK which MSPs can use as a needs assessment. In Phase II half of the participants will take the Lenses on Learning course as an intervention to explore aspects of LCK that change most readily and those that are more resistant to change. Phase III will study how principals with known LCK conduct classroom observations, make judgments about the quality of instruction, and indirectly, affect students' mathematics achievement.
