The goal of the case studies is to provide a starting point for important conversations between pre-service, early career, and master teachers about mathematics teaching and learning.
Montclair State University is partnering with Math for America (MfA) to create a repository of video case studies of secondary mathematics instruction. The partnership includes a team of teachers from MfA, researchers from MSU and the University of Buffalo, and educational professionals from across New York State. Each case study will include a video segment of secondary instruction in real classrooms taught by MfA master teachers and supporting materials (lesson plans, classroom handouts, discussion prompts), representing a set of tools for teachers to use in professional learning communities focused on secondary mathematics teaching and learning. The team includes full-time doctoral students Matthew Wright and Victoria Bonaccorso. They are being advised by Dr. Eileen Murray.
