Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership

KimberLeigh Hadfield, Brynja Kohler, and John Womack (teacher, Sky View High School) attended the annual meeting in Denver June 24-26.

Our group is involved in working with the MODULE(S^2) research action cluster. The Utah partnership has been actively working to improve courses in secondary teacher preparation programs that attend to the development of mathematical knowledge for teaching.

Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership

The Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership (MTE-Partnership) provides a coordinated research, development, and implementation effort for secondary mathematics teacher preparation programs to promote research and best practices in the field. The Partnership addresses the significant national shortage of well-prepared secondary mathematics teachers who can support their students in achieving the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM).

The Partnership seeks to achieve a range of outcomes as a result of this project, including validating interventions to make progress on particular problems, developing strategies for the continued growth of the partnership, and disseminating our knowledge to the broader community. Particular criteria that we will use to judge our progress include (1) the number of candidates produced, (2) improved quality of candidates, (3) the improved performance by students in beginning college mathematics, and (4) promising interventions to improve secondary mathematics teacher preparation and introductory college mathematics courses that can be scaled to a growing number of institutions over time.
