About this Grantee

Mr. Payne and his partners organize a professional learning community of mathematics instructors to join their school’s ongoing professional development initiative. The learning community meets weekly to investigate student work, examine videos of instruction, and refine lesson plans and assessments. Working to develop students’ proficiency with small-group settings, participants also discuss their progress implementing a reform curriculum that relies on student investigations, experiential learning, and problem-solving embedded in realistic contexts.
