Elementary Content Institute
Strengthening mathematical conversations through content
Whether in whole group or small groups, are you working to strengthen and deepen the conversations you and your students have when it comes to fractions? If so, please consider the following professional learning opportunity. As an added incentive for Oakland County teachers, we are happy to let you know that we are able to offer a stipend ($300)* for educators that participate in the full series. Please note: Enrollment is limited to 30 participants.
*If the institute days coincide with an educator’s existing contracted work days he or she is not eligible to receive a stipend.
Applicable for Middle School Teachers Too
"I attended the Fractions Institute last year and it was very helpful for my struggling 6th graders. It also helped to see the trajectory of how fractional thinking develops and is taught in earlier grades... I was so thrilled to see how even activities from much earlier grades tied nicely to what my students were expected to do. It was time well spent."
