Partnering with Principals and Teacher Leaders:  Mathematics Leadership Institute

September 29-30 and December 10, 2015


PARTNERING WITH PRINCIPALS TO RAISE THE CEILING AND THE FLOOR IN THE ERA OF NEW MATHEMATICS STANDARDS
When Principals and Teacher Leaders work in a coordinated way to improve mathematics instruction, th​e results for students can be significant. This institute is designed to guide the team's thinking about the characteristics of high-quality mathematics instruction, and to provide them with strategies to support mathematics instruction school-wide.

The Institute will answer these questions:

  • What should good mathematics instruction look like?
  • What supports are needed?
  • What is the connection between high quality mathematics instruction and student performance?
  • How can school-based mathematics leaders lead and improve instruction and student learning?

Institute Agenda:

Day 1 (9:30- 4:30):  Explore the mathematics your students should be doing in order to meet more rigorous standards.

Day 2 (9:00- 3:00): Use the SOL process goals (communication, reasoning and proof, representation, connections, and problem solving) as benchmarks for observing mathematics instruction. Learn how to build and support mathematics leadership in your school.

Day 3 (9:30- 3:30): Develop a new leadership vision for the mathematics program in your school based on what students, teachers and leaders should be doing to promote quality math instruction.

Session Leaders:

Beth Burnap, Math Specialist, Caroline County Schools

Margaret Newman, Math Specialist, Spotsylvania County Schools

Fanya Morton, Math Specialist/Coach, King George County Schools

Carol Walsh, Math Specialist, Montgomery County Schools
