Classroom Observation and Teacher Supervision in Mathematics Classrooms
“The lenses on learning class not only gave me the opportunity to learn with and from some of Vermont’s most enthusiastic mathematicians, teachers, and leaders, but it gave me the opportunity to hone my skills at focusing education on student learning. I’ve seen math and the observation process in a completely new light.”--Rob Bliss, Principal, Northwest Elementary
