    The Coherence Map: Now K-HS!

    Join us for an upcoming webinar

    Wednesday, March 6
    7-8 p.m. ET 

    The Coherence Map allows educators to quickly understand how math standards connect and build on one another, which has made it one of the most popular tools on Achieve the Core. Previously available for K-8, the map now features mathematical connections through high school.

    Be the first to see the newly extended Coherence Map! The webinar will introduce the structure of the high school section, point out the new high school-specific features, and share some of the embedded resources.

    Supporting Students' Productive Struggle (Grades 6-12) 
    One-Day Workshop

     

    Crowne Plaza Crystal City-Washington, D.C. 
    Conveniently located near Reagan National Airport 
     
    March 29, 2019

    Join us for this one-day workshop and take an initial dive into exploring productive struggle. Designed to begin the exploration of productive struggle through the lens of mathematics, the workshop supports the learning of teachers, coaches, and school- and district-based administrators. Though connected, each session addresses specific questions regarding the story of productive struggle in a mathematics classroom.

     

    These questions will be addressed throughout the workshop:

    • What is productive struggle?
    • Why is productive struggle important to students' mathematics learning?
    • How do we support productive struggle for each and every student?

     

    Key Ideas:

    • Institute content is based on the upcoming publication: Taking Action: Implementing Effective Mathematics Teaching Practices
    • There will be connections to Principles to Actions and the Effective Teaching Practices

     

    Facilitator: George Roy, University of South Carolina

     

    Special room rate available at Crowne Plaza Crystal City-Washington, D.C. for workshop attendees if you reserve your room by March 11.

    Space is limited – register today to secure your spot

    The Park City Math Institute Teacher Leadership Program is accepting applications until January 15, 2019.

    An intensive, three-week residential program, the PCMI/TLP provides participating middle and high school math teachers with the unique opportunity to engage in a deep dive into their own professional development, alongside parallel communities from across the larger umbrella of mathematics profession. In addition to doing math, reflecting on practice, and developing capacity as a teacher leader, both formal and informal interactions connect teachers to research mathematicians, mathematics university faculty, undergraduate & graduate students, and thought leaders addressing equity in mathematics education at the post-secondary level.

    In order to be eligible, applicants to the TLP must be in the classroom at least 50% of the time and returning to the classroom in the fall of 2019. If selected, there is a registration fee of $750 which is offset by a $500 honorarium and $205 meal allowance. In addition, travel, housing, opening reception, closing dinner and M-F breakfast & lunch are included along with all programatic aspects of the institute. There are a limited number of scholarships available based on financial need. This summer's institute will take place from June 30th to July 20th. 
    Applications are due January 15th and can be accessed here:

    3M TWIST

    Teachers Working in Science and Technology

    The 3M TWIST program allows middle and high school math, science, and technology teachers to spend six weeks during the summer working closely with a 3M host on an actual 3M research project. The objective is to provide active and challenging technical experiences for teachers in an industrial setting. TWIST is based on the idea that the way to learn science is to do science – an axiom that applies as much to teachers as it does to their students.

    This program is offered in partnership with the Minnesota High Technology Foundation.

    • TWIST participant and 3M scientist in lab

      How it works

      3M selects about 40 teachers for the program each year. The TWIST program currently brings in teachers to work at our 3M R&D facility in St. Paul MN and in our manufacturing plants in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Texas, North Carolina and Connecticut. During the six weeks of the project, the teachers work under the supervision of their hosts on a research project related to a 3M product or technology.

      After this portion of the program, the teachers are encouraged to participate in follow-up sessions with their school districts to discuss how to best use their new knowledge and share it with their colleagues.

      3M TWIST is now accepting application until January 21, 2019 for the Minnesota TWIST program. Please click here to register.

      3M TWIST is now accepting application until February 28, 2019 for the non-MN TWIST program. Please click here to register.
