Video clips to support faculty members in using more student-centered instruction are used by this project. There are 192 video clips across the EMP lessons (1 to 5 videos per lesson). Furthermore, another 108 video clips are in the searchable EMP Video Library. The video library is organized around five categories: Discourse, Mathematical Reasoning, Norms, Pedagogical Challenges, and Extended Clips. The videos provide images of experienced instructors teaching future elementary teachers in mathematics content courses. Each video includes preservice teachers grappling with complex ideas from an EMP lesson and instructors facilitating participants’ engagement with the content. Commentary from the curriculum designers accompanies each clip to provide context, highlight particular actions and questions made by the instructors or students, or explain the instructor’s decision-making.
The EMP project team also created supports for synchronous online teaching of the EMP lessons. Information for using EMP online outlines strategies, tools, and resources for establishing community and norms, setting up routines for small group work, structures for increasing engagement, and ideas for using online tools such as Google Slides and Jamboards. Additionally, for all 57 lessons, online lesson guides suggest which problems are best to have students work on prior to a class meeting, during small group time, and during whole group time. These lesson-specific guides contain Google Slide presentations that can be edited collaboratively by faculty and students. There are also tips for engaging students, collecting feedback, and using the chat and video features during online class time.
