By Tania J. Madfes, Ann Muench


This updated comprehensive training package helps middle school mathematics staff developers clarify the meaning of standards, evaluate assessments in terms of their alignment to standards, and plan student learning experiences that reflect standards-based teaching practices.

Codeveloped by WestEd and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), this second edition contains the current NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, Grades 6-8.

It includes updated resources and research on mathematics assessment, mathematics professional development, evaluation of professional development, and mathematics teaching and learning.

Also provided are sample scripts for professional development sessions; blackline masters for handouts and transparencies; planning guides; assessment items from the Third International Math and Science Study and the National Assessment of Educational Progress; and a related PBS Mathline® video.
