    Abstract

    Chicago Public Schools has created innovative partnerships with universities and funders in a district-wide initiative to improve P-12 mathematics instruction. This multi-year initiative aims to develop the capacity of teacher leaders, school and network administrators, and district math staff to affect sustainable change at a large scale.

    Abstract

    High quality education in math for young children builds a strong foundation for future mathematics learning. Evidence is clear that early mathematics achievement is associated with later school success, but the field lacks clear definition of excellence in early mathematics teaching. We are also short of available tools to assist teachers and teacher educators in monitoring or assessing classrooms around mathematics teaching. The purpose of this poster was to introduce High Impact Strategies in Early Mathematics, (HIS-EM), an observational tool designed to identify and measure the frequency of high quality mathematics teaching practices in preschool through third grade and to report its early findings.
