Megan Franke is a Professor of Education at UCLA. Megan’s research focuses on understanding and supporting teacher learning for preservice and inservice teachers. She studies how teachers’ use of research-based information about the development of children’s mathematical thinking supports students to learn mathematics. She is particularly interested in how attending to students’ mathematical thinking (Cognitively Guided Instruction) can challenge existing school structures and create opportunities for economically-marginalized students and students of color to learn mathematics with understanding. She has been engaged in a series of studies with Dr. Webb that link classroom practice and student outcomes in elementary mathematics classrooms. In addition, she is studying with her CPC colleagues the impact of field-based methods for preservice teachers. As a member of Development and Research in Early Mathematics Education (DREME), she studies prek-2 coherence and designs resources for early childhood teacher educators. She is currently partnering with LAUSD to support teachers across 120 elementary and preschools. Her work to support teachers, schools, and communities was recognized with the AERA Research into Practice Award, and she was elected to the National Academy of Education.
