2 PDE Building Capacity State-Wide SAS Website Governors Institute on Data Driven Instruction in Mathematics and Literacy – Featured TLA adult learning curricula Proposed SAS Professional Development

3 Teacher Leadership Academy: A Research Supported Approach To employ a Standards Aligned System to enable all PA students to learn mathematics

4 Building Capacity State-Wide Provide two-year courses for IU Math Coordinators to enable every IU to conduct two-year Teacher Leadership Academies – Elementary TLA – Secondary TLA

7 Professional Learning Communities Using expertise of IU-based Mathematics Coordinators IUs build regional PLCs of appointed Teacher Leaders Teacher Leaders lead in-district PLCs

8 Appointment of Teacher Leaders 1-2 teacher leaders from each district building are appointed to participate in the TLA – Secondary: at least 1 from middle and 1 from high school with option for two from each level – Elementary: 1 or 2 teachers from each elementary building

9 Intensive Professional Development Multi-Year commitment – 2 years of 8 days a year – 3 rd year: 7 days Qualifies as academic coursework – 56 hours annually, 2 or 3 CPE credits each year

10 Variety of Scheduling Options Summer with Follow-up – 3 or 4 days in summer – 4 or 5 days follow-up during school year – Saturday make-up day options School Year – 1 day a month or 2 days every other month

11 To Reach Every Teacher of Math Teacher Leaders facilitate in-district PLCs – 24 hours total in eight 3-hour modules annually – Involves all teachers of math at each level – Uses adult learning curricula District schedules time and audience

12 Utilizes Adult Learning Curricula Models How People Learn principles Written and video case analysis builds capacity to examine and strengthen teaching practice Has been nationally field tested and refined

13 Core Adult Learning Curricula for Elementary Mathematics Developing Mathematical Ideas (EDC) Building a System of Tens Making Meaning of Operations Curriculum Topic Study (Maine MSA)

14 Core Adult Learning Curricula for Secondary Mathematics Video Cases for Mathematics Professional Development (West Ed) Standards-Based Mathematics (Pitt) Curriculum Topic Study (Maine MSA)

15 IU Coordinators Support Districts Help districts consider criteria for selection of teacher leaders Facilitate the TLAs Alert districts to plan in-district professional development to begin after TLA Day 4

16 Incorporates data analysis for instructional improvement – PSSA, PVAAS, 4-Sight, Getting Results (Root Cause Analysis; Action Planning) Offers leadership support and content for Classrooms for the Future mathematics teachers for PLCs Integrates Multiple PDE Initiatives

17 Builds understanding of effective core mathematics instruction as essential to Response to Intervention (RtI) Builds understanding of mathematics content to compliment PowerTeaching strategies Integrates Multiple PDE Initiatives

18 Actively applies differentiated instruction to mathematics Integrates formative assessment strategies as featured at 2008 Governors Institute

19 Adds to Intermediate Unit Capacity Induction Courses Courses for Special Education Teachers Research base for Mathematics Curriculum Audits Research base for Math Curriculum Writing

20 Math & Science Collaborative Built Regional Learning Communities 710 District-appointed teacher leaders On-going network for research and resource dissemination and sharing Quarterly Academies for those beyond Year 3 TLA (having completed Yrs 1 & 2)

21 Building Capacity State-Wide via IU Math Coordinator Courses 4 locations for elementary and for secondary – Northeast/Central – Southeast/Central – Northwest/Central – Southwest

22 Proposed PDE Financial Support Greater than 50 miles distant, PDE support would handle travel cost – Lodging in double rooms – Breakfast and lunch

23 Intermediate Unit Roles Identify IU staff to participate in Math Coordinator Courses Time commitment over 2 years in 2-day blocks – Each course = 8 days training annually – Distinct elementary and secondary courses

24 Identify One Modeling District to Engage in Advance Implementation Adds district capacity for each IUs regional PLC Creates district-based voices to advocate for other districts to participate in IU TLAs Allows Math Coordinator to observe challenges of implementation and strategies for support

25 Identify One Modeling District to Engage in Advance Implementation Releases teacher leaders to accompany IU Coordinator for each IU Coordinator course Commits an administrator to attend first 4 days of each IU Coordinator Course

26 Identify One Modeling District to Engage in Advance Implementation Schedules in-district time for teacher leaders to facilitate 24 hours of level-specific professional development for all those teaching mathematics

27 Teacher Leadership Academy: IUs Support Districts To employ a Standards Aligned System to enable all PA students to learn mathematics

28 Start IU Planning NOW and prepare districts to participate next year Plan for your IUs 2010 Teacher Leadership Academies Help districts plan for their teacher leaders participation and their on-site professional development to be led by Teacher Leaders

29 Schedule 2 TLAs for your districts At your IU, schedule two eight-day Teacher Leadership Academies for 2 teacher leaders per building from all districts in IU – Elementary TLA and Secondary TLA

30 Choose TLA timing of 8 days School year and/or summer Full day and/or half day Evening and/or Saturday options Can begin anytime after Day 4 of Coordinator training * (January to August)

31 Intermediate Unit Choices How to support/provide meals How to document/provide Act 48 – MSC will share with participants in Math Coordinator courses a copy of approved state application for 3 credit hours

32 Intermediate Unit Choices Plan to bulk order materials for in-district professional development or provide the district with ordering information District Cost for 2 year course materials – $1500 for 30 participants at elementary level – $500 for 30 participants at secondary level

33 Help Districts Identify Financial Support District support required for support for substitute teachers and materials Access to funds to support in-district costs Title I School Improvement Funds Newly available funding from state

34 Previous Intermediate Unit Input Identify whether an IU wished to be a host Prioritize preference of schedules Many IUs respondedlocations reserved Schedules set for next year:

35 To show interest in participation, fax back 2 Academy Schedule Forms Write IU number and your name at top of each schedule with estimated # of people Circle your preferred Location for Elementary and for Secondary and fax to by December 22nd
