Research surrounding teacher quality and teacher effectiveness has continued to grow and become even more prominent as teaching has become more professionalized globally and countries have invested more comprehensively in teacher education, certification, and professional development. To better understand teacher effectiveness, it is important to have a global viewpoint to truly understand how beliefs and practices vary in each country and can lead to different characterizations of what makes an effective teacher. This includes both cross-cultural commonalities and unique differences in conceptualization of teacher effectiveness and practices. With this comprehensive, international understanding of teacher effectiveness, a better understanding of best practices, teacher models, philosophies, and more will be developed. International Beliefs and Practices That Characterize Teacher Effectiveness identifies, shares, and explores the predominant conceptual understandings of beliefs and practices that characterize effective teachers in different countries. This book provides international and cross-cultural perspectives on teacher effectiveness and examines the prominent philosophies of teaching and pedagogical practices that characterize teachers in selected countries. Each chapter includes a background, such as history and undergirding philosophy within each country, effective teacher models, prominent applications of teacher effectiveness practices, and special or unique features of teaching in the specific countries mentioned. This book is essential for practicing educators in various countries, teacher educators, faculty, and students within schools and colleges, researchers in international comparative studies, organizations engaged in international education, and administrators, practitioners, and academicians interested in how teacher effectiveness is characterized in different countries and regions across the world.

Designed to strengthen the teaching of mathematics in the elementary grades, this book focuses on helping teachers engage in instruction based on learning trajectories (LTs). Renowned scholars, including professional development researcher Hilda Borko, examine four exemplary projects with details on professional development design, teacher learning, and project implementation. Contributors include Hilda Borko, Douglas H. Clements, Susan B. Empson, Victoria R. Jacobs, and Julie Sarama. “This is an amazingly important and valuable resource for mathematics teachers and leaders at any level. It provides the background and understandings so critical for teachers and teacher leaders to regularly consider and use learning trajectories to inform teacher planning and instruction.” —Dr. Francis (Skip) Fennell, professor emeritus, McDaniel College, and past president of the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics “This is the first book that I’ve come across that unpacks what it means to have a framework for student learning at the center of one’s instruction.” —Mary Kay Stein, University of Pittsburgh School of Education “I find this book useful for mathematics educators interested in framing learning trajectories across several domains—including tasks, discourse, curriculum, learners’ understanding, and assessment—to support professional development. Learning trajectories help us make connections among the domains and deepens professional knowledge and understanding.” —Robert Q. Berry III, University of Virginia, and president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
