This course provides Early Career Elementary School Teachers (5 years or fewer in the classroom) with tools and techniques to support an integrated approach to Common Core math instruction. With a focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) participants will experience research-based theories and hands-on, problem-based activities to implement in their classrooms. The co-planning/co-teaching/co-reflecting model will be utilized as a means to develop a professional community and support teachers in their efforts to meet the needs and interests of all students through innovative instructional practices. Issues of equity, access and classroom-to-community engagement will be highlighted.
