Secondary Lenses on Learning

Full Description: 

The Secondary Lenses on Learning professional development program helps leaders from a range of administrative and instructional roles provide strategic and coherent leadership for mathematics programs. The authors provide a comprehensive package that contains everything needed to offer this seminar. Over the course of six nationally field-tested learning sessions, school and district leaders will (a) explore concepts in middle and high school algebra as a window into content, instruction, and assessment; (b) assess the strengths and needs of their mathematics programs, set goals, and generate plans for ongoing improvement; and (c) engage in extended explorations and conversations through readings, problem-based activities, cases, and videos.  Participants in this innovative, new program will deepen their understanding of research-based practices associated with improved student learning and achievement in secondary mathematics and position their leadership teams to address necessary changes at the classroom level and in schoolwide systems.
