Winter Break Edition
JOIN US AT THE MATH EXTRAVAGANZA!
The math specialists from the Office of School Improvement at the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) are traveling around the great state of Indiana providing FREE full-day math-specific professional development and YOU are invited!
The day will focus on promoting and developing ambitious instruction in the K-12 mathematics classroom using NCTM’s Eight Effective Teaching Practices as outlined in Principles To Action (2014). In the morning, educators will participate in an interactive presentation with the IDOE math specialists to discuss the research, resources, and strategies aligned to each practice. The afternoon session will be dedicated to guided implementation time. Educators will be given the opportunity to apply what they have learned in a safe and collaborative environment. Ideas will be shared and connections made!
Five PGP’s will be given for educators who attend the full day professional development
Educators should bring a laptop or other device
Each site will have the following schedule, with minor variations in time, dependent upon location:
