Dear Secondary Math Teachers,

I hope this email finds you well and enjoying your summer vacation!  As you know, we held a math academy in June (with another in July) for all of our middle school math teachers.  This academy focused on the 7th and 8th grade common core which Canyons is implementing next year (2011 – 2012).  In 2012 – 2013 we will be implementing the 9th grade common core and in the summer of 2012 we will be doing a 9th grade summer training.

We have an opportunity this upcoming year (2011 – 2012) for 2 of our math teachers (ONE 9th grade teacher and ONE high school statistics teacher) to work with Hawk Watch International and the University of Utah Center for Science and Mathematics to develop professional development and Common Core-based lesson plans for the three statistics units relevant to the new Common Core.  These lessons and activities will be based on data gathered from Hawk Watch International.

These teachers will be working with other teachers from Salt Lake School District and Davis School District.  They will need to attend 80% of the meetings, attend a Goshute retreat on Sept. 17th, pilot the lessons in their classrooms, encourage students to submits projects for science fair and/or stats symposium, and serve as an instructor in the professional development course to be delivered in summer of 2012.

These teachers will receive USOE, University, or other credit for participation, and a $1000 stipend.  I have attached a document that goes into further detail.

If you are interested in participating, please let me know by July 15th.

Thanks and enjoy the rest of your vacation!
