Abstract

This manuscript describes two cohorts of teachers’ instructional changes through the lens of the Standards for Mathematical Practices (SMPs). These teachers participated in a yearlong professional development program targeting the SMPs. Videos of their pre- and postprofessional development programs were examined using a SMPs-focused protocol. They offered more opportunities for students to engage in the SMPs after the professional development experience than before the professional development. We connect this impression with ways to effectively foster elementary, middle, and secondary teachers’ SMP-focused instructional practices through professional development.
