Saturday Seminars are designed to strengthen your math knowledge and to Talk Teaching Moves as we debrief lessons.
Experience the Standards of Mathematical Practice as you work in random groups and collaborate with peers at vertical whiteboard stations, following the practices of Building Thinking Classrooms. Reflect as a teacher about student autonomy, identity, and discourse.
A week before each Saturday we will send out a "math appetizer" to be done ahead of time and prepare you for the day's activities.
Scholarship (and stipend!) available in 2023-2024
Thanks to the Math and Science Teacher Initiative we are able to offer a limited number of scholarships this year!
To qualify teachers must:
attend four Saturday Seminar sessions
fill out a pre and post survey for the year
attend one 60-minute group reflection meeting with Deb Stetson
Teachers that receive the scholarship will receive free registration to all four seminars, and choose between a stipend for $250 OR classroom supplies up to $250.
If more teachers apply than we have funding for, consideration will be given to teachers who do not already have access to other outside funding sources. The application deadline has been extended to October 15th due to issues with our application platform. Confirmation for scholarship recipients will be sent out on a rolling basis.
