NC Quest, which administers federal funds to train and support North Carolina’s teachers, has set aside just under $300,000 to fund a proposal submitted by UNCG’s School of Education.
The project, “Core Math II: Assisting Teachers’ Implementation of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics with Learning Trajectories, Reform-Oriented Pedagogy, and Instructional Support,” will empower public school teachers to better implement the state’s new math standards in their classrooms.
“It’s exciting,” says Dr. Holt Wilson, the project leader and a professor in the Teacher Education and Higher Education Department within the School of Education. “It’s a difficult time for teachers with the changes in standards.”
