    Product Description

    By Paola Sztajn and P. Holt Wilson

     

    Designed to strengthen the teaching of mathematics in the elementary grades, this book, co-published with Teachers College Press, focuses on helping teachers engage in instruction based on learning trajectories (LTs). The authors bring together the experiences and key research-based findings of four different groups of teacher educators that created effective professional development around LTs. Beginning with a brief introduction to the key principles of LTs, the text then examines four exemplary projects with details on professional development design, teacher learning, and project implementation. The book features contributions from renowned scholars including a final discussion and commen­tary chapter by professional development researcher Hilda Borko.

    This book features

      • A brief introduction to learning trajectories—what they are and their potential to improve instruction.

          • Key takeaways from professional development designers.

              • The practices of professional development designers and facilitators with years of experience helping teachers learn about trajectories.

                  • Exclusive details about professional development design not found in other resources.
