About this Opportunity

Host an additional day of PD focused on the Common Core at your summer training!

The Common Core Mathematics Toolkit is a one day add-on to existing planned PD. We will send facilitators with a full day program to your planned PD training this summer.

This grade band specific one day program focuses on the following four goals:

This PD is aimed at an audience of teachers, was developed by teachers, and is facilitated by teachers. The development teams received feedback from other teachers, PD professionals, mathematicians, and teaacher educators.

If your application to host the Toolkit is successful you will receive trained facilitators at your PD site with all the materials necessary for a day program at a specific grade band (elementary, middle, or high school). Two facilitators will be provided for groups less than 30 participants, and an additional facilitator will be provided for each additional 20 participants. For groups larger than 30 participants, more than one grade band program could be run simultaneously. Venue, refreshments, tables, chairs, an easel with chart paper, and AV equipment including computer projecting equipment with sound (either external speakers or connection to a sound system), and a projection surface (screen or blank wall) are the responsibility of the host organization.

The cost of the day long Common Core Toolkit is $200 per participant.
