The Math Academy has been created to explore the pivotal building blocks and learning progressions that provide the highest possibility of success for student learners as evidenced by student achievement.
The Academy is predominantly funded by a grant provided by the U.S. Department of Education and Granite State College, allowing us to offer the academy at no cost to participants (including lodging, seminars, and meals). Participants will have the opportunity to earn 2 credits from Granite State College for participating in the Academy while acquiring actionable ideas and a breadth of knowledge to bring back to the classroom. Participation in the Academy is limited to four teams.
We encourage you to submit your application today. The application deadline is March 20th.. A limited number of accepted schools will be notified by April 16th in order to plan a visit to your school in early May.
The Academy will kick off with a Keynote session on Formative Assessment featuring Dr. Dylan Wiliam, Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment at the Institute of Education, University of London, where he served as Deputy Director from 2006 to 2010. Throughout his career, he has taught in urban public schools, directed a large-scale testing program, served a number of roles in university administration, including Dean of the School of Education, and pursued a research program focused on supporting teachers to develop their use of assessment as a key component for learning. Tickets to the Keynote event are available for $160 in advance, or $175 at the door, and anyone may attend. Reserve yours now!
We invite you to join the conversation by enjoying this article written by Dr. Wiliam for Educational Leadership.
