Explore our Resource Portal
The BranchED portal is designed to support both teacher educators and PK-12 partners in their professional development. Whether you’re seeking information on a particular topic, looking to take an online course, or to stay current with our evolving library of resources, we’ve got something for you.
Elementary Mathematics Vocabulary
The purpose of this toolkit is to identify key mathematical terminology coupled with activities that explore these terms. These activities can be used as a resource for parents or guardians to build mathematical vocabulary at home or as classroom vocabulary building activities.
Early Math Literacy Instructional Guides
BranchED convened researchers to identify and address some of the knowledge gaps on the importance of early math in student outcomes. Using this information, the team created instructional guides around each of the five content standards as defined by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
Early Math Literacy at Home
Our youngest learners are exploring the world around them daily and making sense of what they experience. This resource provides ideas, examples, and tools for cultivating early math literacy in our youngest learners using math concepts found in every child’s day to day activities.
Early Literacy Math Strategies
This instructional guide consists of a variety of strategies that an early grades math teacher (PK-3) can use to enhance their classroom. They are meant to be incorporated into a lesson as an instructional tool.
Anti-Racist Mathematics Education with Young Learners
This toolkit begins with an overview of the importance of anti-racist mathematics teaching for early mathematics literacy and provides “steps” that early childhood educators can take, either individually or with others, to pursue teaching. Each step contains resources and questions for reflection.
PK-12 Learning Toolkit: Technology Platforms
In this toolkit we highlight Technology Platforms and provide several activities that can be used with teacher candidates and in-service teachers. This is part of our PK-12 Learning Toolkit series.
BranchED seeks to support individual educator preparation programs (EPPs) and the field at large in reimagining and redefining “quality” preparation programs such that attention to issues of diversity and equity are explicit, embedded, and inextricably linked to high-quality performance.
The Resource Portal was created to support our community by providing resources such as instructional materials, online modules, podcasts, practice-based learning opportunities, research briefs, teaching video library, tool/toolkit, and webinars.
