    Building a Community of Learners to Promote Centers of Excellence in Mathematics (A24)

    National Research Conference on Early Childhood
    Erin Reid, Jennifer McCray, Erika Gaylor, Ximena Dominguez, Xin Wei

    Presenting at this national conference, Collaborate members and colleagues demonstrate how we implemented a math-focused PD program that brought together leadership and teachers from multiple preschool centers. By building a community of learners, our PD program shifted teacher confidence and improved math learning for the most vulnerable preschoolers. Our work demonstrates the importance of collaboration within and between early childhood centers to promote the professionalism of all teaching staff and to equip leaders with the tools necessary to maintain a functioning center of excellence in math.

    Evaluating Quality Interactions in Preschool Math: Validation of a Video-Based Observation Protocol (C50)

    National Research Conference on Early Childhood
    Erin Reid, Bilge Cerezci, Joanna Skourletos, Jeanine O’Nan Brownell

    Presenting at this national conference, we examine and discuss math teaching quality, particularly in preschool classrooms, and how it is complicated by the lack of validated measures. This poster introduces a tool that fills this gap, the Evaluating Quality Interactions in Preschool-Math (EQUIP-M) video-based observation protocol. Evidence gathered during the first phase of an argument-based approach to measure validation will be shared. Preliminary results indicate that raters can be trained to apply scoring rubrics accurately and consistently.
