Thanks to Eric Kunnen, John Beam, and the math ed group from UW Oshkosh for sharing their work on preservice teacher tasks. The video can now be found on our Dynamic Discussions Page.
WI-AMTE is excited to host its second paper talk from articles from The Mathematics Enthusiast special issue Support Mathematics Teacher Educators’ Knowledge and Practice for Teaching Content to Prospective (Grade K-8) Teachers. The paper talk will be on May 27th at 7 PM at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89984964719.
This month we will be focusing on Eric Kuennen and John Beam’s work Teaching the Mathematics that Teachers Need to Know: Classroom Ideas for Supporting Prospective Elementary Teachers’ Development of Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching. The authors will join us to describe how to engage preservice teachers “in problem solving as a means of making sense of the content that they will teach and that immerse them in the mathematics practices that they will later need to foster with their own students.”

We look forward to an exciting night of mathematical discussion.
The video for our paper study is now posted on the Dynamic Discussion page or here. Thanks to Mathew Felton-Koestler for helping lead a great discussion.
On March 11th at 7 PM during our Dynamic Discussion, we are launching a new program. Using the newest edition of the Mathematics Enthusiast Special Issue: Supporting Mathematics Teacher Educators’ Knowledge and Practices for Teaching Content to Prospective Teach as our guide, we are hosting a series of paper studies on the education of prospective teachers and the professional development of early career teachers. Given the changes in licensure and the many statewide discussions surrounding this and other issues, now is a prime time to gather and discuss scholarly articles. These paper studies are relevant to anyone who has a stake in mathematics education including mathematics educators, mathematicians, and practicing and mentor teachers.
The focus papers can be found at https://scholarworks.umt.edu/tme/. Our first study will focus on the Guest Editorial: Special Issue on Supporting Mathematics Teacher Educators’ Knowledge and Practices for Teaching Content to Prospective (Grades K-8) Teachers to get a scope of the entire issue and on the Felton-Koestler’s piece Teaching Sociopolitical Issues in Mathematics Teacher Preparation: What do Mathematics Teacher Educators Need to Know?

The meeting itself will be at hosted at: https://uwmsoe.zoom.us/j/258130643 on March 11 at 7 PM
On February 26th from 11-12 Central time, AMTE (National Organization) will be hosting a webinar entitled The Current Status of Novice Mathematics Teachers: Findings from the 2018 NSSME+. Please consider attending to learn about the new teachers who make up a fourth of the teaching workforce and how we can assist them.
All materials from our Dynamic Discussion on Feb 11 on the Wisconsin Math Standard are posted on our Dynamic Discussion page. Please don’t forget to fill out the DPI survey on the standards by February 28th.
Our next Dynamic Discussion will be on Feb 12th. If you have any idea you would like to discuss, please let us know.
The materials from our January discussion on Flipped Classrooms are not posted on our Dynamic Discussion page.
The video for our December discussion is now posted on the Discussions page. Our next discussion will be on January 8th and feature a discussion about flipped and blended classrooms with specific examples from across the state.
