|ITE Middle School Math: 6th Grade - Online
The COVID-19 pandemic has required that we, as educators, explore new teaching methods, embrace new skills, and reevaluate how we cultivate the minds of our young learners as we engage with them virtually. This summer, TCU’s Institute for Teaching Excellence for Middle School Math is embracing this opportunity for growth and professional development. Join us for a four-day, interactive, online experience focused on developing our craft as we inspire mathematical thinking and problem-solving in our students. Led by master teachers (and life-long learners), participants will experience new technologies, activities, and strategies that will enhance and differentiate student learning and support strong vertical team practice throughout the middle school mathematics curriculum. Additionally, participants will work with master teachers in science and social studies to develop activities that will challenge our students to consider timely and relevant scenarios through multiple content lenses to develop a more complex and more complete understanding of the world around them.
This will not be an online webinar - our presenters will engage with participants in large groups and small groups. Participants will “move” from room to room with time for working with small groups and independently, sharing experiences, networking with other teachers, and developing activities for classroom use (both content-specific activities and cross-curricular projects). Each day will end with a time of reflection with your FUN (Friends Uncovering New Ideas) group. Our presenters are committed to cultivating a virtual learning environment that will be fun and stress-free! Together we will share our experiences, celebrate our successes, and problem-solve for the future.
