3 Partnership-Driven Long-standing collaboration of the IU-IMI Partnership Began in 1995 with the creation of the IU Center for Mathematics Education, which partnered with the Indiana Education Network Received $2.1 million NSF funding in 1997 to plan and successfully implement a challenging five year middle grades mathematics LSC project. –Mathematics reform in 53 middle schools involving over 500 teachers and 55 administrators in IMI districts –Alignment of adopted curriculum to Indiana 2000 academic standards –Promoted collegiality within and among districts –IMI district coordinators have met for bimonthly half-day meetings as the executive steering committee of the IMI Consortium and LSC project Anderson Bartholomew Decatur Township East Chicago Elkhart Fort Wayne Hammond Pike Township Vigo County Current IU-IMI Partnership focus: provide comprehensive professional development for leadership cadres of teachers and administrators; and insure that all IMI districts derive permanent benefits from a major effort currently underway at the IU-Bloomington campus to revise and supplement the mathematics courses taken by preservice elementary and secondary school teachers. These linked courses will be created and delivered by teams consisting of faculty from the mathematics department, mathematics education, and experienced secondary teachers in IMI districts

5 Teacher Quality, Quantity, and Diversity Linked IU courses shadow upper-level mathematics courses and help pre-service secondary teachers make connections among the content of the upper-level mathematics courses, the content of secondary-school mathematics, and state and national standards for mathematics curriculum and pedagogy Undergraduate education majors are provided with – curricular resources to help pre-service secondary teachers create lessons aligned with state and national standards. –opportunities to connect with experienced IU-IMIP district teachers to support their career choice and increase job placement Anderson Bartholomew Decatur Township East Chicago Elkhart Fort Wayne Hammond Pike Township Vigo County

6 Teacher Quality, Quantity, and Diversity Connections created among existing IU minority-teacher recruitment programs and non-traditional teacher-certification programs Coordination with the IU Groups Student Support Services (Criteria for participation include: being the first member in their family to attend college, students with limited financial means, and disabled students from all racial and economic backgrounds.) IU Advance College Project - cooperative program between Indiana University and selected high schools Elementary Certification Graduate Program designed to meet the needs of people changing to teaching careers, or who following undergraduate degree attainment decide to pursue teacher certification.

7 Challenging Courses and Curricula Learner–Centered Classroom Environment Elementary:teachers pilot Everyday Mathematics (EM) curriculum Secondary:all teachers required to implement at least 3 lessons and/or projects that feature mathematical modeling and are standards-aligned. Standards Alignment Summer and academic year workshops increase teachers’ understanding among the IMI district math teachers of NCTM’s Principles and Standards (2000), of their relevance for Indiana math standards and of the reform vision of mathematics education. Anderson Bartholomew Decatur Township East Chicago Elkhart Fort Wayne Hammond Pike Township Vigo County works together and/or with Mathematics Assessment Resource Service (MARS) and EM Consultants to custom-tailor tasks specially designed to meet local and state standards takes a close look at the learning and assessment tasks in EM and select MARS tasks that target the content strands of EM instructional materials and Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress (ISTEP) meets, discusses, plans and reviews EM assessment materials and selected MARS tasks with Project Coordinator assists the MARS team during the implementation workshops for Cohort II provides assistance with EM assessment to individual district leadership team upon request with the project’s approval Leadership Assessment Teacher Cadre A select group of four teachers from Cohort I:

8 Evidence-Based Design and Outcomes 1.Has the IMI project developed a cadre of elementary school teachers to effectively pilot Everyday Mathematics materials and serve as mathematics leaders in their districts? 2.Has the IMI project improved targeted secondary teachers’ understanding of mathematics as a connected set of ideas and a language for investigating the real world, with a special focus on modeling as an element of the high school curriculum? 3.Has the IMI project increased administrators’ understanding of standards, awareness of ways to support teachers, and understanding of how the initiative can assist them in complying with Public Law 221? 4.Has the IMI project improved student achievement in mathematics and narrowed student achievement gaps in mathematics? 5.Has the IMI project strengthened the mathematics content course component of the university’s teacher preparations programs? 6.Has the IMI project improved the preparedness of pre-service teachers to teach standards-based mathematics curricula? Anderson Bartholomew Decatur Township East Chicago Elkhart Fort Wayne Hammond Pike Township Vigo County Monitored and evaluated by Horizon Research Inc. by analyzing state-wide ISTEP testing and locally developed quarterly exam data, learning logs, interviews, workshop observations, and surveys which are designed to answer these questions:

9 Institutional change IU linked courses for pre-service secondary teachers formalized and expanded. Enhanced mathematics content for pre-service elementary teachers (expanded from 7 to 9 credits). Administrator Awareness Sessions focus on the connection between standards-based classroom instruction and administrators’ responsibility to comply with Indiana Public Law 221. Objectives of these sessions are: –to assist administrators in developing plans and strategies for implementation of the best possible mathematics program in their buildings, –learn how to support their teachers in mathematics reform and –learn how to evaluate curricular offerings and teaching methods. Elementary Leadership Cadre –pilot the Everyday Mathematics (EM) curriculum and submit weekly learning logs to journal their implementation the first year and receive advice from an EM consultant (Log Reader) to sustain the impact of face-to-face workshops. –serve as mentors to novice teachers in the following year and submit assessment reflections after each unit. –comprise approximately 15% of all math teachers in the project’s schools. Anderson Bartholomew Decatur Township East Chicago Elkhart Fort Wayne Hammond Pike Township Vigo County

10 Institutional change The Select Leadership Cadre –consists of one 2nd and one 5th grade pilot teacher from each IU-IMIP district (18 Cohort I teachers) –made 2-day visits to exemplary schools in Michigan. Teachers gained first-hand experiences as to “what is my role as a teacher-leader?” and “what are the characteristics of an exemplary mathematics classroom?” –will conduct 4 workshops within their school districts to share the information learned during the visitations to Michigan schools with the other teachers from their buildings who were involved in cohort I of the IU-IMIP project. A project-wide electronic community is sustained through the IMI Forum, a web-based discussion board hosted and moderated by the project.
