- Count me in too
"Count Me In Too" uses a team-based approach to professional development with a focus on practice in the classroom. Teachers come to understand students' thinking in mathematics by carrying out individual interviews and using the information from this assessment as a starting place for teaching. The research-based learning framework then provides clear guidance for instruction so that it can build upon the most advanced thinking that students can demonstrate. Although "Count Me In Too" started with a sole focus on number learning, it has expanded into other aspects of mathematics learning, such as measurement and geometry. In each case, the focus has been on using a synthesis of the research to provide clear direction for teaching.
