Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership

Mathematics PartnershipLaunched in 2012, the Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership (MTE-Partnership) is comprised of 42 teams across 32 states – working collaboratively to redesign secondary mathematics teacher preparation programs based on its Guiding Principles for Secondary Mathematics Teacher Preparation and the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educator’s Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics (AMTE, 2017). Using the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching’s Networked Improvement Community model, the MTE-Partnership is organized into Research Action Clusters (RACs) that work to address challenges in transforming secondary mathematics teacher preparation, including (a) clinical experiences of candidates; (b) mathematical experiences of candidates (and others) in introductory mathematics courses; (c) the particular mathematical needs of future mathematics teachers; (d) recruitment and retention of candidates; and (e) retention of new graduates in the field. And finally, two working groups help bring the work of the RACs and MTE-Partnership together; one focusing on equity and social justice and the other on supporting overall program transformation.
