Subject: Re: Adopting a new mathematics curriculum

My school began using a supplementary series called SpringBoard two years
ago.  Last year they began an every other month after school voluntary "study
group" for the series. We hold different sessions for different levels (grades
6, 7, 8 and algebra), facilitated by our teacher specialist and master
teachers from the district, sometimes held concurrently, sometimes on
adjacent days.  Everyone who teaches the units is invited to come, with a
goal for at least one representative coming per school, who can then go back
and share with the others.  These sessions have helped teachers embrace the
units and use them more effectively in their classrooms.  I wish more
teachers would come, but enough come to make a difference.
