Enhancing Student Learning
I plan on using this grant to further my education in regards to Mathematics and Mathematics Leadership. As stated in the NCTM Teaching Principal, "Teachers must have frequent and ample opportunities and resources to enhance and refresh their knowledge." This conference will allow me to do just that. My goal for the 2013-2014 school year is to provide more professional development in my district. My objective is to provide monthly meetings for the Mathematics teachers within my district. During these meetings, I plan to provide information on how to enhance computational fluency with understanding and to guide teachers in providing valid interventions. I will evaluate this plan using mini-assessments throughout the year to determine if progress is being made. I will use my background in Cognitively Guided Instruction to pre-assess and post -assess students to see if progress is being made with interventions within the classroom.
