EKU K-12 Mathematic Teachers' Workshop
Welcome! The faculty and staff of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of Eastern Kentucky University invite educators, future educators, and administrators to the 15th Annual K-12 Mathematics Teachers’ Workshop. The theme this year is Assuring Growth Across All Groups. The event will be held at the Carl D. Perkins Conference Center at EKU on September 21, 2017 from 4:00 PM until 7:15 PM. Attendees will receive three hours of professional development in math content area. Refreshments will be served.
Policies and legislation are always changing, but research shows that helping students develop a growth mindset creates lifelong learners. We want to foster children’s natural creativity and curiosity so that, as they get older, they don’t lose these traits but instead hone and rely on them to continue learning and seeking knowledge.
At this workshop, attendees will hear about researched and vetted best practices for developing and implementing curriculum and instruction methods that create and encourage growth mindset among students of varying ability levels and backgrounds. This includes, but is not limited to, socio-economic status (SES), special education (SpEd), high achievers, low achievers/intervention, gender, and race. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn techniques for measuring growth.
Sessions will also be geared toward elementary, middle grades, and secondary education with some general interest. New this year, there will be a few sessions for administrators who wish to know how to best support their teachers. We look forward to seeing you!
About:The K-12 Teachers’ Workshop at Eastern Kentucky University was created by Dr. Robert Thomas in 2003 as a way to offer professional development in content area to students and regional math educators. What began as a small gathering on the fourth floor of the Wallace building has grown into a substantial event. This would not have been possible without the aid of Dr. Amy King and Dr. Cheryll Crowe. We hope to have many more successful years and that is only possible through the continued participation by Kentucky educators. Thank you all.
