Rise in Math: Teacher Teams

Rise in Math: Teacher Teams provides educators with curriculum-aligned, classroom-tested, evidence-based practices and strategies that promote math thinking and foster students' joy of learning.


What Is Rise in Math: Teacher Teams?

CORE Learning’s Rise in Math: Teacher Teams uses coaching and inquiry-based professional learning to help educators center themselves in their own learning and create active learning classrooms where students are engaged and empowered as doers of mathematics.

 

We support educators seeking to embed recommendations for Multilingual Learners, SEL, and DEI into math teaching and learning.

 

Teacher teams of 4-12 teachers can choose one or more strands that fit their needs and focus.
