Designed to strengthen the teaching of mathematics in the elementary grades, this book focuses on helping teachers engage in instruction based on learning trajectories (LTs). The authors bring together the experiences and key research-based findings of four different groups of teacher educators that created effective professional development around LTs. Beginning with a brief introduction to the key principles of LTs, the text then examines four exemplary projects with details on professional development design, teacher learning, and project implementation. The book features contributions from renowned scholars including a final discussion and commentary chapter by professional development researcher Hilda Borko.
