Call for Proposals: AMTE Professional Book Series, Vol 6

Building Community to Center Equity and Justice in Mathematics Teacher Education

The purpose of this new book from the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE) Professional Book Series is to provide mathematics teacher educators (MTEs) practical ideas of how to build community to center conversations and action on equity and justice in mathematics teacher education. The goal of building community focuses on generating critical conversation, reflection, and action about and for equity and justice in mathematics teacher education. This book will be written from and with a critical, practitioner stance and will provide a variety of research-based cases (scenarios, tasks, modules, activities, etc.) to support MTEs to build community in mathematics teacher education courses and professional development collaborations. 

Book editors: Courtney Koestler and Eva Thanheiser

Proposals (1-2 pages) are due September 15, 2022. See the full Call for Proposals for additional information.

AMTE Dissertation Award

The annual AMTE dissertation award serves as a means to elevate the work of early career scholars whose research has strong implications for mathematics teacher education that supports preservice and practicing teachers in any of the following ways: to understand the ways in which social, historical, and institutional contexts of mathematics affect teaching and learning; to teach in ways that are responsive to such realities; and to advocate for each and every student.

Deadline for self-nominations is July 15, 2022.

Press Release: AMTE Statement on The Role of Elementary Mathematics Specialists in the Learning and Teaching of Mathematics

This updated joint position of the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE), the Association of State Supervisors of Mathematics (ASSM), NCSM: Leadership in Mathematics Education (NCSM) and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) calls for elementary mathematics specialists to help ensure equitable and effective mathematics learning for each and every student.

Press Release: AMTE Statement on Technology

One goal of AMTE is to improve mathematics teacher education and K-12 education by recognizing the ever-increasing impact of technology on our field. Our organization is thus committed to critically examining how technology intersects our work as Mathematics Teacher Educators (MTEs) and supporting research-based incorporation of technology in our work.

Press Release: AMTE Statement on Equitable and Inclusive Mathematics Teaching and Learning

AMTE advocates for teachers’ freedom to use their expertise and professional judgement to meet the individual needs of all learners in their complex classrooms as they work to teach mathematics in equitable and anti-racist ways. We recognize that mathematics curriculum is multifaceted and needs to represent the diverse experiences, histories, and identities that make up our world. For too long, mathematics curriculum has been presented from one point of view and has ignored contributions from mathematicians of color and from diverse backgrounds, opportunities to use mathematics for liberation, and connections between mathematics and the lived experiences of historically marginalized and minoritized students. It is important that there is diversity in representation and opportunities for learners to engage, explore, connect with, and question the curriculum and to see how mathematics extends beyond their experiences. As an organization, we support mathematics teacher educators and teachers across the nation who are working to bring this authenticity into the classroom to enhance the learning of mathematics for all.
