Abstract: We report on design-based research to refine a professional development workshop that supports teachers to customize online curricula. We iteratively design representations to make the knowledge integration pedagogy of the curricula visible. We study ways to make the work of students using the curricula actionable for participating teachers. We analyze participants’ trajectories across the three iterations of the workshop. Initially, when participants realized they could customize the online curriculum, they developed feelings of ownership. Then, as participants deepened their understanding of the pedagogy, they began to use it to evaluate their own instruction. The trajectory culminated in participants connecting the pedagogy to student work from their own classroom. This led to a shift from focusing on remedies for misconceptions to seeking opportunities for building on students’ nascent ideas when customizing. The workshop refinements empowered teachers to mobilize the pedagogy to interpret their students' work to inform their customization decisions.
