Professional Development Design
The New York City Mathematics Project (NYCMP) collaborates with teachers, coaches, staff developers, administrators and superintendents to transform the ways in which mathematics is perceived, taught and assessed in urban classrooms. The project offers on site consulting, courses, workshops, seminars, study groups and conferences to support mathematics teaching and learning. NYCMP professional development services are interrelated and intended to provide a foundation from which educators can develop a comprehensive approach to mathematics education. Partnerships with schools and networks are intensive, multi-year, and site-based. Networks and schools are encouraged to select a cluster of services that can be tailored to specific needs.
The New York City Mathematics Project's professional development model has three mutually-reinforcing components: the services of an on-site teacher consultant who works directly with teachers, staff developers, students, and administrators; after-school graduate seminar or study groups in the teaching of mathematics, which is held on-site each semester for school faculty; and, direct work with school administrators, focusing on their goals for mathematics education.
