The Visual Access to Mathematics (VAM) Opportunity for Grade 7th Math Teachers

05/17/2023 1:41 PM | Anonymous

Hello Connecticut Grade 7 mathematics teachers!

The Visual Access to Mathematics (VAM) professional learning project is currently open to grade 7 math teachers in Connecticut, but to guarantee a spot in this opportunity, you need to act soon. There are two remaining scheduled 30-minute Zoom information sessions (on May 23rd at 4:00pm and on May 25th at 3:30pm). To sign up for one of these information sessions, or to let us know you are interested but cannot make it to either information session, complete this interest form as soon as possible: VAM interest form.


At the information session program leads will share highlights about the VAM course, the research study, and the associated $850 stipend, and will answer any questions you may have. A few key benefits for teachers are as follows (and a flyer with more information is attached): 

·        Improve teaching and learning of grade 7 mathematics (ratio and proportion) content for all students and in particular for multilingual learners/English learners.

·        Teacher stipend of $850.

·        Option to register for graduate credit for a fee.

·        Opportunities to connect & engage with educators state-wide.

Let us know you’re interested a.s.a.p. (by the end of May to guarantee a spot) by filling out the VAM interest form! This opportunity is being offered through a partnership between the Connecticut State Department of Education, the Regional Educational Laboratory Northeast and Islands, and several other professional organizations in Connecticut (including ATOMIC).

The ATOMIC Mission is to ensure that every Connecticut student receives world-class education in mathematics by providing vision, leadership and support to the K-16 mathematics community and by providing every teacher of mathematics the opportunity to grow professionally.
