The GECDSB’s Mathematics Leadership Learning Project (MLLP) was designed to build capacity of mathematics lead-learners and mobilize them within schools in order to build expertise of all educators. This project supported Math Leadership Learning Teams in 6 schools to lead math learning through Professional Learning Communities (PLCs).
- Building mathematics content, pedagogy and leadership knowledge and skills of school-based math leaders
- Better understanding the supports needed for math leaders
- Improving student achievement in mathematics
- Informing system planning and supports
Data were gathered in the 6 MLLP schools from MLLP teams (surveys and interviews) and students (PRIME mathematics assessment).
Further details, results, and implications for future learning can be found in the NEW report by our Mathematics Leadership CoP & GECDSB.
In Spring 2017, members of our Critical Transitions CoP began a project in locally developed Grade 9 classrooms in partnership with Lakehead University and Lakehead Public Schools. In June 2017, in-depth semi-structured interviews of three teachers at the partner high school who had or were teaching the Grade 9 Locally Developed course were conducted. Throughout the project, a number of new classroom resources, lessons, and so on were designed, field tested and revised, and this work is on-going.
To learn about the project so far, check out their full report, “Revisioning the Three R’s from the Ground Up: Relationships, Resilience, and Resources.” A 1-page summary is also available here.
The Math Pod is a collaborative open learning opportunity for all educators lead by three Ontario math leadership networks, the MLN, ML2N, and NWML2N.
Cycle 3 of The Math Pod occurred from April 4-25, 2018. During these 4 weeks of professional learning with Dr. Cathy Fosnot, participants moved from arithmetic to algebra. Check out the highlights from Cycle 3 in this NEW report by our Mathematics Leadership Community of Practice!
