July 10 – July 13, 2018
Early Math Summer Institute
Contact hours: 20
Cost: $800 (before Tuesday, March 13, 2018)
Our Early Math Collaborative’s annual Summer Institute, Meaning-making in Early Mathematics Education (MEME), is open to teachers (preschool through kindergarten), school administrators, teacher assistants, classroom coaches, and teacher educators.
MEME 2018 is four days of intensive, exciting early math exploration. Led by instructors from Erikson Institute’s Early Math Collaborative, authors of Big Ideas in Early Mathematics: What Teachers of Young Children Need to Know, the event will be both challenging and fun. This hands-on professional development opportunity will delve deeply into practical ways you can improve early math instruction and will help make early math learning meaningful for both you and young children.
During the event, you will collaborate with colleagues and enjoy stimulating plenary sessions focused on developing a deep understanding of the Big Ideas — those central, coherent, generative, and developmentally appropriate concepts that are the foundation of all mathematics. You will work with other engaged adults in the beautiful Erikson Institute learning environment, and enjoy the wonderful food, shopping, and entertainment options Chicago has to offer.
Included as part of the institute are an opening reception the evening of Tuesday, July 10, and a fun group excursion in Chicago the evening of Wednesday, July 11. Breakfast and lunch will be served daily.
