July 29, 2020, 3-4:00 pm Eastern time

Presenters: Erin Altier, University of South Florida and Wharton High School; Jaeden Ayala, University of South Florida; Dr. Michelle Cirillo, University of Delaware; Dr. Cara Haines, Vanderbilt University; Dr. Farshid Safi, University of Central Florida; Dr. John Staley, Baltimore Public Schools; Jonathan Wray, Howard County Public School System

Description: We hope you will join us for a webinar featuring a panel around Learning to Teach in the Midst of a Pandemic: Voices of Stakeholders. In the webinar we will hear the experiences and reflections of pre-service teachers, and those in the field supporting the learning of pre-service teachers, about the shifts that teacher preparation programs will need to make to continue to provide quality teacher preparation given the pandemic conditions that are pushing learning online. We anticipate the AMTE community will be able to use insights gained from these perspectives to improve how teacher preparation programs respond to the needs that pre-service teachers have in this unprecedented time.

Presenters: Frances K. Harper, Zachary Stumbo, and Nicholas Kim, University of Tennessee, Knoxville;

Description: Join AMTE's National Technology Leadership Initiative (NTLI) Fellowship recipients as they share and discuss a project designed for methods courses to support PSTs to plan and teach mathematics lessons that leverage both transdisciplinary STEAM connections and students’ community funds of knowledge. Participants will follow a group of PSTs through the project and then brief results from research on the relationship between STEAM and community connections in PSTs’ mathematics lessons will be shared.

Part 1: Engaging Students Online with Zoom (2-2:30 pm EDT)

Presenters:

Kathleen Pitvorec, University of Illinois at Chicago & Mary Jo Tavormina, University of Illinois at Chicago
Description: We will share our content management and community engagement strategies using the Zoom platform, as well as some of the online tools that have worked well.

  Part 2: Synchronous Online Teaching Strategies (2:30-3:00 pm EDT)

Presenter: Theresa Elvira Wills, George Mason University
Description: Learn how to turn your F2F classroom into an engaging, interactive, and student led online classroom.  Use the same pedagogy such as turn and talk, small groups, summarizing ideas on a poster, math talk, connecting and debating math strategies and representations through a synchronous class.  I have also responded to the Rapid Response Videos.  Many are on my youtube channel and twitter @theresawills

Wednesday, Mar 25, 2020 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM PDT

Equitable K-14 pathways provide each and every student access and support that mathematically prepares them for their future. Recent reports call for changes in the mathematics students need to be college, career and citizenry ready, with greater emphasis on statistics and modeling. In this webinar, we examine course pathway design and implementation, and related policies and practices for K-12 and the first two years of college that effectively support each and every student to be mathematically prepared for their future, along with common pitfalls to avoid. We draw on recently released research and recommendations, including those from the current Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) High School to College Pathways Project and the recently released 2018 National Survey on Science and Mathematics Education (NSSME+) report.  

Overview

This webinar will look at the current status of novice mathematics teachers (those in their first five years of teaching) in the United States.  Using data from the 2018 NSSME+, findings about novice mathematics teachers’ characteristics, their preparation for teaching mathematics and ongoing learning opportunities, and the nature of the mathematics instruction they provide will be shared.  Participants will have an opportunity to consider these findings in relation to AMTE’s Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics and reflect on implications for mathematics teacher education.

Overview

The increased importance of statistics in today's data-driven world is reflected in the increased level of statistics understanding expected of K-12 students according to the CCSS-M and state-level standards. Join us to learn about two projects focused on developing middle and secondary teachers' statistical knowledge for teaching, including free, research-based curriculum materials for use with preservice teachers.

J. Michael Shaughnessy and Edward A. Silver address the updated draft of the NAEP Mathematics Assessment Framework is available for public feedback for further improvement. As experts in math education, members of AMTE are invited to provide feedback on the draft, and comments are accepted through June 7, 2019.  This webinar, co-sponsored by AMTE and WestEd, offers AMTE members to learn more about the framework and establish context for feedback.

Overview

Barbara Swartz, Melinda Knapp and Sararose Lynch address the need to transform field-related content and methods courses into practice-based opportunities grounded in AMTE’s Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics (SPTM) by sharing models-in-progress of mediated field experiences (MFEs) and guidance for others who are interested in developing MFEs in their respective programs.
