Foundations for Early Childhood Mathematics 2016-2017

The KCM Foundations for Early Childhood Mathematics (Formerly K-EEMC) professional development features content developed by the Erikson Institute, leaders in early childhood education. Participants will learn how to spark children's mathematical learning though developmentally appropriate exploration, discussion and activity using high-impact, evidence-based strategies and children's literature which support the teaching and learning of early mathematics.

The KCM Foundations for Early Childhood Mathematics training includes 8 half-day training sessions. Upon registering, participants are expected to attend all eight half-day sessions.

In addition, the KCM will be offering an optional extension opportunity during the 2016-17 academic year. Four additional half-day sessions are available for several cohorts (indicated below). These extension sessions will occur in the afternoons of the regularly scheduled course sessions. Topics to be explored will include Math Teaching Practices (MTPs) in the early childhood classroom, professional noticing, and other content relevant to the development of participants’ instructional decision making. Extension dates are optional, but we do encourage your participation for an additional opportunity to explore the Foundations for Early Childhood Mathematics.

Mathematics Content Coaching

For 2016-17, KCM has once again partnered with the Kentucky Department of Education to offer Mathematics Content Coaching professional learning experiences (PLE) with Master Coach, Anne Burgunder

Mathematics Content Coaching is designed to provide mathematics instructional coaches and administrators with job-embedded, learning opportunities that are aimed at initiating profound, sustainable, school-wide improvements in teaching and learning. The content coaching model works to build a school culture that has a shared understanding of how to engage students in learning mathematics through well-designed learning tasks and activities. All participants will observe a master coach as she co-plans with a teacher, co-teaches a mathematics lesson in a classroom, and then debriefs the lesson. The intended outcome of the KCM Mathematics Content Coaching PLE is to increase student achievement in mathematics and implement successful mathematics intervention by maximizing the impact of a mathematics coach.

Algebra I Lesson Study

Join the Kentucky Center for Mathematics and Master Teacher, Anne Burgunder for four days in 2016-17, as we explore productive and exciting ways to address the teaching and learning of Algebra I concepts. Participants will engage in lesson studies by jointly drawing up detailed plans for Algebra I lessons. Then master teacher, Anne Burgunder, will teach an Algebra I lesson in a real classroom (as other group members observe the lesson). The group will then come together to discuss their observations of the lesson and ideas for improvement. The focus will be on developing lessons that will allow students to engage in algebraic reasoning by recognizing and analyzing patterns, studying and representing relationships, making generalizations, and analyzing change.

Collectively, we will explore essential ideas for learning algebra and will expand our techniques, resources and strategies for teaching algebra in ways that reach a wide range of students. We will compare symbolic ways of teaching algebra with a contextual approach and explore ways to integrate these two approaches so that ALL students (including those students who are often labeled as “not ready”) gain access to the essential content of this topic. This interactive, hands-and-minds-on learning experience will help participants think about ways of developing Algebra I lessons that are positive and motivating, and ultimately enrich the school mathematics experience.

For this PLE, administrators are encouraged to attend the Day 4 session alongside their teacher(s). Administrators, who attend Day 4 of the PLE, will leave the session better equipped to outline a school vision for the instruction that should be taking place in all of their mathematics classrooms. Pending approval, administrators will be offered EILA credit for their attendance. Administrators should also register for this PLE offering using the "More Information & Registration" links below.
