HS Math teachers needed

We are looking for a Math and Science teacher from Albany, Guilderland, and
Schenectady High Schools to be a part of mentoring teams that will play an
active role in our professional development program entitled
"Technology-Enhanced Multimodal Instruction in Science and Math for English
Language Learners," (or MOP for short). This project is sponsored by the
University at Albany?s School of Education, Department of Educational
Theory and Practice. Carla Meskill and Alan Oliveira are the project PIs.**

The proposed program goal is to provide direct training to teachers and
school personnel throughout New York State's schools over a five-year
period, training that will enable educators to thoughtfully and effectively
orchestrate math and science instruction that enhances content mastery
through multimodal instructional strategies for Academic English.
Simultaneously we will collect data on classroom purposes and outcomes.
These data will serve the project formatively for the (re)design of
professional development activities and summatively to inform the larger
teacher education community regarding best multimodal classroom practices
for ELLS in math and science.

This time commitment amounts to approximately:

- one hour per month during the school year

- plus 30 hours during the summer for the summer 2013 institute

- Along with gaining capacity and knowledge, we will offer a cash stipend
for the work on this project.

- In addition, this is an excellent opportunity to develop a leadership
role in one?s building, and there is a possibility to receive professional
development credits for participation in the summer institute.

Please contact Gretchen Oliver ( if you are interested
or for more detailed information.

Thank you!
