We have started a page – many from AMTE national to help facilitate online teaching. If you have resources you would like to add, please e-mail Matt Chedister (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Michael Steele (email@example.com).
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?

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.
On Wednesday, November 20 from 3-6, WI-AMTE will be hosting on-line discussion entitled “From Novice to Expert: Strengthening the Pathway to Teaching in Wisconsin.” Discussion will focus specifically on how to attract more students to the teacher pipeline, how to support and retain those teacher candidates during their student teaching and first years of service, and how to develop them into expert teachers and future mentors and coaches. All participants will work together to share and discuss what we can do, both individually and collectively to meet those goals with a focus on creating working groups to continue this work through the upcoming year and years in order to strengthen mathematics teacher education in Wisconsin.
