Summer Workshop Plans
Joint Proposal Summer Workshop Agenda
Here is the information on the New England Regional Center for the Interactive Mathematics Program's summer workshops:
How long do your workshops last?
Four days each.
How many teachers do you involve in your workshops?
So far we have about 220 teachers signed up for this summer's workshops.
What are your major goals for your workshops in terms of content and pedagogy?
These workshops are designed for those who will be teaching that year for those who will be teaching that year of IMP during 1999-2000. They cover an in-depth preparation to teach the beginning of that year's curriculum using student centered pedagogy and alternative assessments. They are followed-up by school year workshops which cover the remainder of the curriculum and focus on teacher's pedagogical concerns.
Are you offering professional development on specific curricula that you are hoping will be used in the classroom? If so, which curricula are you using?
The workshops are training in teaching the Interactive Mathematics Program years. Yes, most teachers will be using it in the classrooms in the fall, or will be supporting those who do (resource room teachers).
