Collaborations with the Springfield and Brockton Public Schools for mathematics advancement.
Through a Massachusetts
Math and Science Partnership grant, the Springfield Public School system
is collaborating with Lesley University to implement a systemic change
program for all grade 5 - 8 middle school teachers of mathematics. The
project builds upon seven successful years of standards-based
mathematics professional development in Springfield in conjunction with a
former MMSP and a US-DOE Teachers for a Competitive Tomorrow grant.
Throughout this project, Lesley University will be offering nine
graduate level mathematics courses in the city of Springfield.Students
whose teachers participated in the partnership in prior years are
showing improved mathematics scores four years after they were in
classes with teachers who completed the math content courses. This
sustained student achievement over time is statistically significant and
testifies to the quality of the partnership and success of the
participating teachers to impart what they learned in their math content
courses to their students. In response to Springfield highlighting the
needs of English Acquisition Learners, Lesley has made a commitment to
incorporating strategies for teaching students who are non-native
English speakers in all its courses and programs.
often STEM is divided into STE and M. This partnership, funded through a
Massachusetts Math and Science Partnership grant, will bring
mathematics in as an integral and visible component of science,
technology, and engineering. This program is designed to focus on the
mathematics of science in a compelling, synergistic program comprised of
inquiry science laboratories and problem solving mathematics.Participating
middle school and elementary school teachers will engage in working
through the necessary mathematics as they investigate particular
disciplines of inquiry-based science with faculty from the Science and
Mathematics disciplines in the Divisions of STEM and Natural Science and
Mathematics at Lesley University. Program offerings will include a
variety of graduate level mathematics of science courses.
