KCM is looking for teachers to join new learning cohort

667

Applications are now being accepted for new members of the Foundations for Primary Grades Mathematics (2nd- and 3rd-grade teachers) cohorts.

The cohorts are professional learning communities that grow 2nd- and 3rd-grade teachers’ understanding of effective ways to scaffold and differentiate instruction in a learning climate that welcomes questions, opinions and student participation. Members will focus on how to select instructional tasks that encourage mathematical discourse and help students conceptually understand place value, addition/subtraction, multiplication/division and fractions.

Participants receive specialized training from an experienced facilitator featuring evidence-based strategies and materials from experts in early numeracy development. Community members provide support to each educator as new strategies and methods are utilized in the classroom.

To participate teachers must:

  • Be a 2nd- or 3rd-grade classroom teacher;
  • Attend and fully participate in all in-person meetings;
  • Complete required readings and assignments;
  • Reflect on practice and be prepared to share thoughts with others; and
  • Provide feedback on surveys and evaluation forms.

There is no cost for participation. Registrations close soon.
