Teacher Education Curriculum Materials that Develop Statistical Knowledge for Teaching

Presented by: Stephanie Casey, Andrew Ross (Eastern Michigan University)


Statistics is more important than ever in today's data-driven world. This is reflected in the increased level of statistics understanding expected of K-12 students according to the CCSS-M and state-level standards. To develop middle and high school teachers' statistical knowledge for teaching, the MODULE(S^2) project has created curriculum materials for use in introductory statistics course(s) that preservice secondary teachers take. The materials develop preservice teachers’  subject matter and pedagogical content knowledge for teaching statistics as well as their equity literacy. In this webinar, we will provide an introduction to these materials including examples of statistical tasks and classroom videos from the materials. Alignment of these materials with ASA’s GAISE, ASA’s Statistical Education of Teachers report, and the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educator's Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics will be highlighted. Also, we are recruiting faculty to be piloters for the materials.
