Secondary Math Teachers,

This email contains information about professional learning opportunities that are available this summer through USBE. (information)

Summer Professional Learning Opportunities

Below are details about summer professional learning courses that are available to math teachers.  Participants will have an opportunity to earn $150 stipend at the end of each course and of course, re-licensure points.  Please see email below for more information including location and registration information.


ISD Secondary Math Team

Greetings Utah Mathematics Educators,

We are excited to announce three summer professional learning courses for 2019! Note that all locations will offer participants the chance to engage in either the elementary or secondary Mathematics for All Students course on Monday and Tuesday AND THEN the What the Tech? course on Wednesday and Thursday for a fluid four day run of fantastic mathematics-centric professional learning! See below for course details, dates, and locations.

Each course participant will have the opportunity to do an extension after the conclusion of the course that will earn them a $150 stipend (thanks to the STEM Action Center’s generous donation).

Sign up in MIDAS today using the course codes next to each course!<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__usbe.midaseducation.com_site.php-3Fpage-5Fid-3D1210&d=DwMFAg&c=fGrSkuu3YyS91PacIZP0XfO0GRH7JgL5znLEO6-CQG0&r=hD1RgVtVAfjHqM6ipl7VgIa9sOnyksaDjm7Cex6HZqan_jJHJ-cb-QMyiG7IG6q9&m=XOz4tCNITKqg5CTjklwTT1IaDPIpQK_DxG2qywory2g&s=0czbuERySB7oHlaTA4w7ycxQ-f0F3SzK4FmVz7SpgmM&e=>

Elementary Mathematics For All Students (Course #50652):

Re-invigorate your math instruction by coming together to collaborate with teachers, engage with rich mathematics tasks, and apply key practices to your own math classroom. Leave with concrete strategies you can use to enhance your planning, instruction, and assessment to create an equitable learning environment that enables all of your students to succeed in mathematics.

Secondary Mathematics for All Students (Course #52313):

Participants will learn to apply the Utah Multi-Tiered System of Support (UMTSS) framework to increase student learning of mathematics and promote high expectations for each and every student.  The sessions will focus on practical strategies to implement high quality math tasks in an accessible way, elicit student thinking, and support productive struggle.  Discussions and activities will integrate and encompass the critical components of the UMTSS framework:  High-quality Instruction, Team-based Problem Solving, and Data-based Decision Making.

What the Tech? Improving the Efficacy of Your Mathematics Classroom (Course #52275)<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__youtu.be_g7u91japmYs&d=DwMFAg&c=fGrSkuu3YyS91PacIZP0XfO0GRH7JgL5znLEO6-CQG0&r=hD1RgVtVAfjHqM6ipl7VgIa9sOnyksaDjm7Cex6HZqan_jJHJ-cb-QMyiG7IG6q9&m=XOz4tCNITKqg5CTjklwTT1IaDPIpQK_DxG2qywory2g&s=SwHkBDfpf3A-xoscM4fdWso3LhkNLC-vQX7ATb3X_ak&e=>:

What the heck is “What the Tech”? In this course, mathematics plays the lead role with technology as the supporting actor. Come learn about what makes a mathematics classroom effective, how to incorporate technology into a mathematics classroom strategically and how to evaluate what’s working and what is not. Novice to expert tech users from grades K-12 will be engaged in the use of digital tools to provide opportunities for students to reason critically, communicate effectively, and model mathematical concepts using multiple representations.
