Benefits of being a pilot site include
- Having certified trainers by the end of the 2015/2016 school year, and local trainings during the 2016/2017 school year
- Working closely with (Mi)2 and Foundations of Math course developers to bring a high quality professional learning opportunity to your teachers and provide feedback that helps shape future developments regarding the program.
- Experiencing results for your teachers and students on a shorter time line (versus waiting for full state scale up)
What is the difference between Level 1 and Level 2 Training?
A 5-day, state-level Foundations of Math training may serve up to two purposes. The audience may include a mix of people participating for their own professional learning, while others may be working toward Foundations of Math instructor certification. While both types of participants are going through the same experience, they have different expectations and different assignments.
- Level 1 training - The 5-day Foundations of Math course with an (Mi)^2 certified instructor, including Level 1 assignments, taken for one's own personal professional learning. This may or may not be a state-level offering.
- Level 2 training - A state-level 5-day Foundations of Math course with an (Mi)^2 certified instructor, including Level 2 assignments, taken by instructors-in-training toward instructor certification.
