We hope that you will be able to join us this summer for a 1-2 week professional learning workshop at the University of North Alabama in Florence, Alabama. The first week will be learning how to explore essential mathematical concepts using the Python programming language. The second week will build upon the work of the first week and will provide teachers with enhanced application and development for use in their existing classroom curriculum. No programming experience is required for you or your students.
This workshop will help you integrate Alabama's College and Career Readiness Standards into your classroom with ready to use lesson units. Topics will include how to connect the standards to your classroom, techniques for transforming your teaching to emphasize essential math concepts, and increasing student understanding. The skills acquired in this workshop will prepare your students for success in STEM studies and careers. The target audience is 8-12 math, computer science, science, and career technical teachers.
Teachers may register for a one week (choice of two weeks), or a two week workshop. The first week (May 28 - June 1) is a complete introduction to the instructional treatment. The second week (June 4 - 8) builds upon week one and is an in-depth exploration of the instructional treatment's pedagogy and application. Participants will earn STIPD credit and be paid a $100 stipend per day of attendance. Both weeks of the workshop will meet from 8:30-3:30 on the UNA main campus. Space is limited, so please register as soon as possible.
In addition to the summer professional learning, CPR^2 offers the potential for continued professional development in the classroom throughout the school year. More information about classroom visits is available by contacting CPR^2.
