Fayetteville State University Education Students Work with Cumberland County Schools Specialists

by September 16, 2019


September 10, 2019, Cumberland County Schools’ 6-12 Mathematics Curriculum Specialists, Yimiya Pearson and Shonette Simmons, conducted a professional development session for Fayetteville State University (FSU) students on “Unpacking the North Carolina Standards for Middle School and High School Mathematics.”

FSU Professor Dr. Kimberly Smith-Burton’s EDMG 433 Methods and Materials in Middle Grades Math and EDUC 460 Methods and Materials in Secondary Math students were actively engaged in effective math teaching practices and standards. The math methods students participated in routines that emphasized the goals for rigor in the mathematics curriculum: conceptual understanding, procedural fluency and application. Students were afforded the opportunity to interact and ask the CCS mathematics specialist questions regarding what to expect during their methods observations, clinical experience (student teaching) semester and first year teaching.
