Teacher PD – Week 4 – Class Notes

Today we went over the research papers we read about Math PD. We reconstructed the LHS framework through the lens of different researchers – hard mental exercice but gave us a good grip on the different foci each one has.

  • Differentiation amongst teachers
    • “Students of treatment teachers whose mathematics knowledge was below that threshold did worse than students of control teachers with comparable knowledge.” (Givvin & Santagata, 2011, p.445)
  • Requirement to do the PD
    • Research
      • + More data
      • – Less engagement
  • Change from one year to the other
  • Pre-diagnose the teachers
