Investigating Content Professional Development For New Elementary Teachers
You have hired new teachers, now where does the content professional development (PD) begin? In this session, we investigate data related to pre-service teachers' content knowledge, after instruction in content and/or methods courses, as a means of informing where PD should begin. The content foci of the PD as well as strategies for engaging the new teachers in PD, including use of released items from CCSSM-type assessments, will be explored.

Curiosity about students' mathematical thinking is the heart of effective, joyful mathematics teaching.
