Professional Development

To help educators prepare for, implement and discuss socially and culturally responsive problem-based learning.

Professional Development  

STEMD2 offers  strategies for teaching middle school math in the 21st century. The teacher needs to leave the pulpit at the front of the room and start facilitating learning in a student-centered environment that increases motivation, engagement, and success. The professional development courses includes practical strategies for working with the students in the classroom to help them learn. There are 4 major components to NKH 2.0 that will be explained in this PD opportunity:

Formative Assessment  

Students struggle in the classroom because the classroom environment is so different from every other setting in their lives. Today’s students are tech-savvy and social, but in the classroom, they are asked to put away their devices and stop talking. These vast differences between their “regular” lives and school cause many students to struggle, particularly in math. The answer seems obvious: bridge the gap between the math classroom and the rest of the students’ life experiences.
