  2. Agenda • MT2 Overview • Partner Selection • Research & Findings • Questions

  3. The Partners

  4. The MT2 Program • Funded in 2010 for six years • Targets Foundational-Level Mathematics • English Learners • Technology • 10 Master Teaching Fellows • Two Cohorts of 10 Teaching Fellows

  5. Master Teaching Fellows • Recruitment and Selection • Training • Summer Institutes and other professional learning experiences • National Board Certification • Expectations • Work with CSUF teacher candidates • Open their classrooms • Provide leadership • Collaborate

  6. Teaching Fellows • Recruitment and Selection • Preparation • FLM credential program • M.S. in Secondary Education program • Expectations • Complete credential requirements • Complete graduate program requirements • Teach in high-need district • Collaborate

  7. Partner Selection • Common Vision • National Board for Professional Teaching Standards • Districts’ Demographics • History of Collaboration

  8. Districts’ Demographics

  9. Students Scoring at Proficient & Advanced in 2010-2011

  10. History of Collaboration • University Perspectives - Establish long-term partnership with districts - District needs inform university programs • District Perspectives

  11. Research • Data Collection • Sample • Instrumentation • Analysis • Preliminary Findings

  12. Data Collection • Collaborated with district leaders & department chairs to disseminate paper survey • Master Teaching Fellows distributed survey to colleagues • Collected survey via site visits • 58 of 95 (61%) teachers responded to the survey
