FREE Math Teacher Training Available
The Michigan Integrated Mathematics Initiative (MI)² has secured funding to provide a four-day institute to train facilitators to deliver the professional development course, "Enhancing Mathematics Instruction for Students with Learning Difficulties: Algebraic Expressions and Equations (Grade 6-8)." The course is designed to be taught by a pair of facilitators, one with expertise in mathematics and the other with expertise in special education.
Educators in the following roles are encouraged to apply: staff developer, math coach, math specialist, math coordinator, special education leader, inclusion facilitator, instructional support specialist, or teacher leaders. Facilitators will be trained to teach the three-day course in their home districts for the 2012-2013 school year, so those with day-to-day classroom responsibilities will need release time from their classroom duties in order to prepare for and facilitate the three sessions of the course.
