11/19/18 4:00 PM Receipt
Grant to a New Hampshire agency, organization, or individual to increase the capacity of local and state agencies to provide mathematical instruction in K-12 schools. Priority will be given to projects that address the needs of students in grades K-3 and connect the foundations of earlier grades to grades 4-8.
The purpose of this RFP is to seek proposals from individuals, agencies, or organizations (hereafter referred to as applicant(s)) to work in conjunction with the NH Department of Education, Bureau of Instructional Support to build strong foundational State and local capacity to implement evidence-based mathematical practices.
NHDOE is seeking applicants that can:
1. Demonstrate how the implementation will span, support and make connections from grades K12 in mathematics. This year’s (2018-2019) proposal will have a primary focus of students in grades K-3 and the connection of the grades K-3 foundations to grades 4-8.
2. Provide high quality professional development activities that will help teachers move students from the concrete level of mathematical reasoning to representational (pictorial) level of mathematical reasoning to the abstract level of mathematical reasoning based on their abilities and learning styles.
3. Provide a component that will build a statewide capacity for sustainability. This component may include a co-teaching or coaching model.
In order to be considered for funding, the applicant’s proposal must address the following priorities:
Priority 1: The goal of this proposal is to increase the capacity of elementary school educators to provide arithmetic and mathematical instruction using evidence-based practices.
Priority 2: Increases in educator capacity will ensure that participating educators master both the knowledge and application of the Standards for Mathematical Practices and the eight Mathematical Teaching Practices in an instructional setting with elementary students.
Priority 3: Increases in educator capacity will ensure that participating educators master arithmetic and mathematical learning progressions germane across the learning spectrum from K-12 grade, so that participating educators know the progressions leading into their own instruction and the progressions that will follow their instruction.
Priority 4: Increases in educator capacity will ensure that participating educators master multiple means of representing core arithmetic and mathematical learning progressions to help them connect with all learners. This will include knowledge of multiple instructional manipulatives and the use of manipulatives across learning progressions spanning multiple grades.
In order to be considered for funding, the applicant must include evidence of the following minimum requirements. This may include both a written narrative as well as up to three (3) letters of recommendation.
1.1 Knowledge of the eight Mathematical Teaching Practices.
1.2 A demonstrated understanding of arithmetic and mathematical instruction using manipulatives across content areas.
1.3 An approach that accumulates student arithmetic and mathematical capacity using a
learning progression approach.
1.4 Knowledge of the current New Hampshire College and Career Ready Standards for
1.5 Knowledge of the current New Hampshire state model mathematics competencies for all grades.
1.6 The ability to work with representatives from State agencies, partner organizations, school districts, teachers and other stakeholders.
