CPM Meets Your Needs

Teachers working in teams in the classroom

Professional Learning that Meets Your Needs

Teachers need support as they transition to a student-centered, problem-based curriculum, and the Professional Learning Progression is designed to offer that support. Our multi-year approach is facilitated by a knowledgeable cadre of experienced CPM teachers.

From live, in-person learning events and coaching to online sessions and remote professional development, we offer a range of support to fit districts’ needs and educators’ busy schedules.

Implementation Support Visits

Implementation Support Visits (ISV) are included in year one and year two of implementation. The intent of an ISV is to provide individual support, non-evaluative feedback and an opportunity for teacher reflection as teachers begin to connect the knowledge they have obtained during CPM learning to the realities of the classroom.

Additional Learning

These additional supports are also available.
Leadership Icon

Leadership Support for Implementation

This learning is designed for leaders to understand the principles and practices necessary to support a successful Implementation of CPM materials. Learn more.

Foundations Icon

Building on Foundations for Implementation

This professional learning builds upon the Foundations for Implementation Series by engaging participants with research, tools and resources that support student-centered, problem-based learning. This Professional Learning will be offered virtually ongoing throughout the summer and offered at a few select regional locations. Learn more.

This live event is intended for participants who have experience using CPM. If you are new to CPM, please enroll in a Foundations for Implementation live event instead.

Algebra Tiles Blue Icon

Algebra Tile Session

Algebra tiles are incredible for visualizing mathematical ideas geometrically! CPM is offering two-hour virtual sessions to see how these little tiles can help students solve equations, complete the square, and move from concrete to abstract thinking. Learn more.

Contracted Support

CPM’s Professional Learning team members will work with you to develop flexible, personalized professional learning matched exactly for your school’s or district’s needs.  Request for Contracted Support.

Coaching Icon

Coaching

Research indicates that effective coaching changes practice. CPM’s coaching model includes intentional, ongoing, non-evaluative interaction between a math coach and a teacher, and is designed to be an effective means to support teacher growth and, in turn, increase student learning while using CPM materials.

Foundations for Implementation

This professional learning is designed for teachers as they begin their implementation of CPM. This series contains multiple components and is grounded in multiple active experiences delivered over the first year. This learning experience will encourage teachers to adjust their instructional practices, expand their content knowledge, and challenge their beliefs about teaching and learning. Teachers and leaders will gain first-hand experience with CPM with emphasis on what they will be teaching. Throughout this series educators will experience the mathematics, consider instructional practices, and learn about the classroom environment necessary for a successful implementation of CPM curriculum resources.

Page 2 of the Professional Learning Progression (PDF) describes all of the components of this learning event and the additional support available. Teachers new to a course, but have previously attended Foundations for Implementation, can choose to engage in the course Content Modules in the Professional Learning Portal rather than attending the entire series of learning events again.

Edit

Building on Instructional Practice Series

This series contains three different courses, taken in either order. The courses are designed for schools and teachers with a minimum of one year of experience teaching with CPM curriculum materials. Teachers will develop further understanding of strategies and tools for instructional practices and assessment.

Building on Equity

In this course, participants will learn how to include equitable practices in their  classroom and support traditionally underserved students in becoming leaders of their own learning. Participants will reflect on how their math identity and mindsets impact student learning. They will begin working on a plan for implementing Chapter 1 that creates an equitable classroom culture and curate strategies for supporting all students in becoming leaders of their own learning. Follow-up during the school year will support ongoing implementation of equitable classroom practices.

Building on Assessment

In this course, participants will apply assessment research to develop methods to provide feedback to students and to inform equitable assessment decisions. Participants will develop assessment action plans that will encourage continued collaboration within their learning community.

Building on Discourse

This professional learning builds upon the Foundations for Implementation Series by improving teachers’ ability to facilitate meaningful mathematical discourse. This learning experience will encourage participants to adjust their instructional practices in the areas of sharing math authority, developing independent learners, and the creation of equitable classroom environments. Participants will plan for student learning by using teaching practices such as posing purposeful questioning, supporting productive struggle, and facilitating meaningful mathematical discourse. In doing so, participants learn to support students collaboratively engaged with rigorous, team-worthy tasks with all elements of the Effective Mathematics Teaching Practices.
