New K–2 PD Program Supports Math Success for All Students

Babette Moeller

EDC’s Dr. Babette Moeller and her colleagues at Bank Street College of Education have designed a unique, effective professional development program to improve elementary math instruction. Newly published by Corwin in association with EDC, their comprehensive, multi-media Math for All (K–2) program engages general and special education teachers in collaboratively planning standards-based math lessons. A special emphasis is placed on developing a deep understanding of each student to ensure all students succeed in and benefit from mathematics learning.

The Math for All (K–2) suite of materials features books with step-by-step guidance for facilitators and participants, as well as DVDs that show examples of high-quality math instruction “in action” in the classroom. All materials focus on three aspects of instruction:

  • Assessing young students’ strengths and needs
  • Using multiple strategies to teach specific math concepts
  • Tailoring lessons to ensure each student achieves high-quality learning outcomes in mathematics and meets the Common Core State Standards

Also available: A suite of materials for professional developers who work with Grade 3–5 educators.
