Supporting Teacher Leaders: Milwaukee Master Teachers
The Milwaukee Master Teacher Project (MMTP) is a Noyce Track 3 Master Teacher program focused on supporting the growth and development of urban high school mathematics and science teachers. MMTP uses a microcredential-based approach to developing teacher knowledge and practice. During the first four years of the project, teachers selected areas of mathematics and science content and pedagogy to explore through a scaffolded action research methodology. In the project's culminating year, teachers are planning, enacting, and studying a year-long teacher leadership project that builds on what they have learned throughout the project. The projects involve a diverse set of activities, including curriculum development and implementation, the design and deployment of teacher professional learning, mentoring preservice and early-career teachers, and building- and district-level instructional leadership. In this video, we share how we structured the leadership projects and the voices of the teachers as they have enacted the projects in the midst of a global pandemic.
