Dear Adult Education Instructor,
TERC is pleased to announce new and unique professional development opportunities for adult education instructors?EMPower Professional Development Workshops.
The TERC team is currently offering a two-day summer workshop for teachers of ABE, preGED/ASE classes to be held at TERC in Cambridge, MA on July 26-27, 2007. Our hands-on workshop is based on the Extending Mathematical Power (EMPower) series, an innovative math curriculum geared towards adult learners. The EMPower curriculum fosters a pedagogy of learning for understanding and challenges students and teachers to extend their ideas of what it means to do math. It also promotes a learning community in which students are encouraged to work collaboratively, explore open-ended investigations, and share multiple ways for solving real-world problems. (To view a sample lesson, click here).
The first day will focus on Geometry and Measurement, and the second on Number and Operation Sense (with fractions, decimals, and percents). The cost for attending our workshops is $150 per participant per day and all materials will be provided?including the EMPower teacher and student books for the topics (a retail value of $81.80).
Alternatively, customized trainings are available by request for organizations with 25 or more participants who wish to host sessions at their location.
For full details, please see our EMPower Workshop Inquiry form or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to reserve a slot.
We hope to see you this summer!
