Summer Workshop PlansTeachers As Agents Of Systemic Change (TAASC) Tentative Schedule
Teachers As Agents Of Systemic Change (TAASC)We have a summer workshop of one week. Participants take three minicourses of their choice. Each minicourse meets for 100 minutes for each of the five days. How many teachers do you involve in your workshops? In each of the first two years we had 120 teachers. This year the last of the workshops we have to this point registered 139. What are your major goals for your workshops in terms of content and Pedagogy? Each of the minicourses is designed to teach content making use of a variety of teaching methods that we would encourage teachers to use in their own classes. No courses are taught specifically for pedagogy although the course this summer on using assessment to improve teaching and learning probably comes the closest. 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? We expose teachers to the various materials available but do not provide professional development as such on specific curricula. We have used material from Core-Plus, Connected Mathematics, SIMMS, Interactive Mathematics, and others.
