2018 Math Teachers’ Circle Training Workshop
June 18-22, 2018
MAA Carriage House, 1781 Church St. NW Washington, D.C. 20036
This workshop is specifically designed for leadership teams of K-12 and higher-education mathematics professionals who are starting MTCs for teachers who work primarily with students from groups traditionally underrepresented in mathematics. In addition to initiating Math Teachers’ Circles, participants will learn about models that coordinate Circles for teachers with Circles for students to provide additional opportunities for both in-school and out-of-school learning in mathematics.
During the workshop, teams will engage in Math Teachers’ Circle sessions and also spend time planning their own Circle, including recruitment, logistics, and fundraising for long-term sustainability. In addition, participants will hear from leaders of active Circles to gain insight into the ways in which leaders successfully carry out their work.
Accepted teams will receive full funding for their participation in the workshop, as well as small seed grants to help begin their Circle.
To be eligible for the workshop, you will need:
- A leadership team of two K-12 math teachers or teacher leaders, and two higher-education math professionals (see FAQ: Leadership teams);
- A host institution committed to supporting your Math Teachers’ Circle (see FAQ: Host institutions);
- A letter of commitment from your host institution (see sample letter of commitment in the “Quick Links” box).
