Learning Trajectories for Teachers: Designing Effective Professional Development for Math Instruction
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.
