Description: 

California Collaborative Deputy Director Joel Knudson joined the March 2019 meeting of the California State Board of Education to share lessons about mathematics teaching and learning that emerged from the Collaborative’s December 2019 meeting in Long Beach. Among the key areas of attention that come from both research and practice, Knudson discussed the need to explore problems in context; attend to the capacity needs of adults throughout the system; address structural barriers to equity; and ensure that systemic supports enable improvement at the classroom, school, and district levels. The presentation highlighted several examples from school districts that shared their work with Collaborative members in December. Following the presentation, Lori Grace of Twin Rivers Unified School District described her district’s comprehensive effort to transform mathematics in her district, sharing many of the practices and lessons learned that the Twin Rivers team had presented to Collaborative members in December.
