Math/Science Teacher Leadership Synthesis Project

Developing math/science teacher leadership: A consensus approach to evaluating program quality


The Developing math/science teacher leadership: A consensus approach to evaluating program quality project is funded by the National Science Foundation (ECR 1534698). The purpose of this synthesis project is to build consensus on the key attributes of high-quality math/science teacher leadership development programs. High quality teacher leadership programs are those that prepare and support teachers to positively impact math/science teaching and learning beyond their own classrooms. The three major objectives of the project are to:

  1. Review research on math/science teacher leadership development and descriptions of existing programs;
  2. Bring together a group of knowledgeable practitioners, researchers and policymakers to build consensus on key attributes of quality programs; and
  3. Communicate the consensus attributes along with recommendations for implementation and future work to stakeholders.

The reports from this project include:
