What Professional Development does CPM provide for newly adopting schools and districts?
For newly adopting schools and districts, CPM provides a series of professional development days (up to 8 the first year) to assist the teacher in implementing the curriculum to fidelity. These sessions are led by experienced classroom teachers who teach one or more CPM courses in their classrooms. The professional development program is devoted to learning what the Mathematical Practices look and sound like in the classroom and how to facilitate discourse about the SMPs with the students along with chapter walkthroughs.
The CPM Professional Learning Progression describes the three year commitment CPM offers to all implementing schools and districts.
