AMP: Professional development for improving middle school teacher and student problem-solving skills


"This article provides grounded insights about professional development experiences that promote teachers' and students' growth of productive problem-solving behaviors. Artifacts and use of teacher-generated products provide evidence of teacher growth (as described by Lischka, Sanchez, Kastberg & Tyminski, 2016) in orchestrating appropriate learning experiences for students and teachers' ability to identify specific aspects of student problem-solving growth. Teacher growth in problem solving is recognized ultimately to be cyclical rather than linear and is profoundly affected by teachers' workshop experiences and subsequent reflections. Facilitator and teacher resources are included."
