About the Project

The Common Core High School Mathematics Leadership: Transforming Teachers’ Content Knowledge and Leadership Skills for a New Era (CCHSML) is a collaborative effort of the UWM Department of Mathematical Sciences, Department of Teaching and Learning, and the Center for Mathematics and Science Education Research in supporting various school districts in southeastern Wisconsin.

This two-year professional development project will engage school-based teams of teachers in an intense study of the Wisconsin Common Core Standards for Mathematics with three foci: deepening content knowledge, enhancing instructional practice, and developing leadership and mentoring practices.

Goal 1

Deepen teachers’ content knowledge related to the high school Statistics and Probability, Geometry, and Modeling conceptual categories in the CCSSM.

Goal 2

Transform the ways in which teachers plan for, enact, and analyze instruction through the Standards for Mathematical Practice.

Goal 3

Build teachers’ coaching, mentoring and leadership skills. The long-term outcome of this project will be high-level, CCSSM-aligned instruction in the targeted conceptual categories, sustained through teacher’s coaching, mentoring, and advocacy abilities.
