Learning Trajectories for Teachers : Designing Effective Professional Development for Math Instruction
by Paola Sztajn and P. Holt Wilson




Overview -

Designed to strengthen the teaching of mathematics in the elementary grades, this book focuses on helping teachers engage in instruction based on learning trajectories (LTs). Renowned scholars, including professional development researcher Hilda Borko, examine four exemplary projects with details on professional development design, teacher learning, and project implementation.

Contributors include Hilda Borko, Douglas H. Clements, Susan B. Empson, Victoria R. Jacobs, and Julie Sarama.

"This is an amazingly important and valuable resource for mathematics teachers and leaders at any level. It provides the background and understandings so critical for teachers and teacher leaders to regularly consider and use learning trajectories to inform teacher planning and instruction."

—Dr. Francis (Skip) Fennell, professor emeritus, McDaniel College, and past president of the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics

"This is the first book that I've come across that unpacks what it means to have a framework for student learning at the center of one's instruction."

—Mary Kay Stein, University of Pittsburgh School of Education

"I find this book useful for mathematics educators interested in framing learning trajectories across several domains—including tasks, discourse, curriculum, learners' understanding, and assessment—to support professional development. Learning trajectories help us make connections among the domains and deepens professional knowledge and understanding."

—Robert Q. Berry III, University of Virginia, and president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
