This course is designed to bring together graduate level pre-service K-12 teachers and special education professionals interested in examining the roles and responsibilities of all "stakeholders" in school mathematics reform. Specifically, the course will examine promising practices in teaching and assessing school mathematics as these relate to students constructing their own mathematical knowledge. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics, the NCTM Professional Standards for Teaching Mathematics, and the NCTM Assessment Standards for School Mathematics will be the lenses through which issues, trends and promising practices in teaching, assessing, and learning will be viewed. Assignments for this course will be differentiated according to certification interests.
