In the 25 years since the release of the Professional Standards for Teaching Mathematics (NCTM, 1991), much has been learned about the teaching practices that support students’ understanding and learning of mathematics. This learning has recently been synthesized into a set of eight effective mathematics teaching practices that are articulated in the publication Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All (NCTM, 2014). This session will engage teachers in exploring these practices, with a focus on: •Implementing tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving •Facilitating meaningful mathematical discourse •Posing purposeful questions During this session participants will have the opportunity to engage in activities that highlight different, effective teaching practices, including analyzing mathematical tasks, student work samples, and video clips. Participants will also consider what they will need to work on to make these practices come alive in their own classrooms.

Over the past 20+ years she has been developing research-based materials for use in the professional development of mathematics teachers and studying what teachers learn from the professional development in which they engage. She has authored or coauthored over 75 books, edited books or monographs, book chapters, and peer-reviewed articles. Her book, 5 Practices for Orchestrating Productive Mathematics Discussion (coauthored with Mary Kay Stein), has been a best selling book at NCTM since its release in 2011. She was a member of the writing team for Principles to Action: Ensuring Mathematical Success of All and is currently the chair of an NCTM working group that is creating materials to support implementation of the effective teaching practices in Principles to Actions. She was the founding editor of the journal, Mathematics Teacher Educator, which is co-published by NCTM and AMTE. Questions? Please contact Stephanie Schwab email@example.com | (610) 755-9369
