The New Teacher Induction Program for Secondary Mathematics supports middle and high school teachers new to mathematics education. First and second year mathematics teachers are invited to participate. Experienced teachers who will be teaching mathematics for the first time are also invited to apply.
Participants attend monthly Saturday sessions throughout the school year. These sessions provide a format to share ideas, materials, and concerns, deepen mathematical knowledge, model good teaching, and promote collegiality.
Each participant is assigned a coach. These coaches are all former middle or high school teachers. Coaches meet with teachers several times per semester to help plan lessons, observe, collaborate, and discuss concerns including classroom management, best practices, motivation, maximizing classroom participation, time on task, assessment techniques and more. The coaches co-facilitate monthly Saturday sessions.
The Saturday seminar dates for the 2017-2018 school year are-
- August 12, 2017
