Subject: TIMSS facilitator training
The date of the face to face facilitator training for the TIMSS online
course has been set! We will be hosting the two day face to face
training at WGBY on August 14-15. The TIMSS course: TIMSS Video
Studies-- Explorations of Algebra Teaching uses the TIMSS videos to help
math teachers reflect on and improve their own teaching.
What this means.... If you know of any middle-grade math teachers who
would be interested in taking the TIMSS online course, please encourage
them to register soon! Over the past couple years, we have learned that
summer is the best time to take online courses! Teachers can register
at [ http://www.intel.com/education/math ]www.intel.com/education/math .
Once we have a good number of TIMSS graduates in our region, ICT will
send an application and then select candidates for the facilitator
training taking place at WGBY on August 14-15. Teachers must complete
the online course prior to being trained as a facilitator. Since the
course takes 6 weeks, now's the time to start!
Please forward this to any math teachers who you think would be
interested in the online course or facilitator training. And, as
always, please direct any questions to me and I will be happy to answer
