*Please note that this course will discuss the newly released Math curriculum (June 23rd) from the summer 2020 session forward.*

The primary focus of Mathematics Part 3 is to view the teaching and learning of mathematics from a leadership perspective while continuing to develop your knowledge of mathematics content and pedagogy. You will critically explore the professional identity and practices of leaders through researching, discussing, and reflecting on these overarching questions:

  • What do teachers need to know and be able to do so they can provide inclusive and equitable mathematics teaching that creates positive mathematics identities and promotes successful learning for all students?
  • As a leader, how might I contribute to transforming my school into a learning organization, in which all stakeholders are partnering to improve our students’ dispositions and success with learning and doing math?

Consistent with the leadership theory that student needs predict educator needs, you will collaborate to analyze student work, increase your assessment literacy to better identify student strengths and needs, and learn to create professional learning experiences that lead to permanent change in educator practices.

Requirements

Application Requirements

1) OCT Membership showing completion of Part 2.

2) CONFIRMATION OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE FORM Signed by a Supervisory Official* from your School Board confirming that you have two years (388 days) of teaching experience since becoming a certified teacher, one year (194 days) of which is in the subject area of this course.

*The Ontario College of Teachers defines "Supervisory Official" as the Superintendent or Assistant Superintendent of the school board for a teacher employed by a Board of Education. A principal or headmaster is not recognized in this capacity.

For a teacher employed by a private school, the "supervisory official" is the Ministry of Education official (Education Officer) appointed to your school. For overseas experience the appropriate Supervisory Official is the person your Principal reports to.

**Please note that a new form is always required for a Part 3 (Specialist) course as experience is course/subject specific.
