Call for Chapter Proposals: AMTE Professional Book Series, Volume 5

Reflection on Past, Present and Future:
Paving the Way for the Future of Mathematics Teacher Education

Series Editor

Babette M. Benken, California State University Long Beach


The spirit of the new volume of the Association of Mathematics Teacher Education’s (AMTE) Professional Book Series will be to reflect on research and what we know about how best to prepare mathematics teachers and present what is happening in the field. Yet, the primary focus of this handbook will be to discuss what we do not yet fully understand and where we are going–in essence, how we can move the field forward. Thus, the goal is to provide a resource that paves the way and guides the future of mathematics teacher education. Furthermore, it will highlight examples of how we are preparing teachers across multiple contexts (e.g., within district, in content courses for the major) and grade ranges (K-20+). We seek proposals for chapters from a wide audience of individuals who grapple with how best to prepare and support teachers to teach mathematics.

The nominee must have demonstrated commitment to advocacy in mathematics teacher education through one or more of the following:

Levels: individual, community, organization, or political work.

Outlets: conference, media, legislation, community outreach and organization, publications, etc.

We acknowledge there are a variety of actions that may constitute advocacy as people work in service of more equitable societal outcomes.

Call for Supplemental Materials to Support the Implementation of AMTE’s SPTM

The Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics (SPTM) elaborate what beginning teachers of mathematics must know and be able to do as well as the dispositions they must have to increase equity, access, and opportunities for the mathematical success of each of their future students. AMTE welcomes proposals for materials related to aspects of the SPTM that will support mathematics teacher educators in implementing activities and tasks that will advance mathematics teacher educators’ work to implement the SPTM. Proposals (no more than 3 pages) are due December 4(December 15, 2020). Please see the full solicitation for additional information and instructions on how to prepare and submit your proposal.

Press Release: AMTE Statement on Systemic Racism

The Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE) stands in solidarity with Black Americans in the face of racial injustice. We are dismayed by the inhuman and unjust treatment of Black Americans by law enforcement personnel in recent months with the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery.  We acknowledge the inequities that the pandemic has illuminated related to health care, economic standing, and education. As an organization, AMTE believes that racism must be interrogated in this country. We cannot look at what is happening to Black Americans and other oppressed groups as problems that they alone need to solve.
