NC-PIMS 2006-2007 Professional Development Plan

 

To give a sense of the upcoming NC-PIMS Facilitator activities in 2006-2007, the Project Director is providing this brief Professional Development plan touching on what’s in store.

The plan consists of the work assignments of three teams of NC-PIMS Facilitators and covers the period from December 2006 through July 31, 2007.  Some details of the plan may be subject to modification.

 

Mathematical Modeling Team (6-12)--Ray Jernigan (Team Leader) and Eleanor Pusey

 

The Mathematical Modeling Team will

  •        serve as active participants on the Mathematics Course Development Team. 
  •        be responsible for the development of a 12-hour Mathematical Modeling Workshop—with detailed outline completed by January 31, 2007.

In addition, two teams, the faculty members of the Mathematical Modeling Development Team and a team of three Secondary Regional Lead Teachers and District Specialists will review the outline.  A near final draft of all workshop materials will need to be completed by April 30, 2007.  The draft workshop will be reviewed by the two teams in early May and a final copy of the materials will be sent to duplicating by the end of May.

  •        (with Regional Lead Teachers) be responsible for offering the Workshop to all 6-12 Lead Teachers on July 24, 25, and 26.
  •       team teach the Mathematical Modeling Course with Dr. Shelby Morge at different locations via two-way television.  Class dates will be June 25, 27, 29 and July 9, 11 13, 23.  This is a 7-day course, 6-hours per day.

 

Measurement Team (K-5)--Kathy Harris (Team Leader), Alice Brown, Kacey Sensenich and Wilma Godwin

 

The Measurement Team will

  •        be responsible for designing a new 12-hour Workshop with a detailed outline to be completed by January 31, 2007.

In addition, two teams, the Measurement Team and a team of three to six K-5 Regional Lead Teachers and District Specialists will review the outline.  A near final draft of all workshop materials will need to be completed by April 30, 2007.  The draft workshop will be reviewed by the two teams in early May and a final copy of the materials will be sent to duplicating by the end of May.

  •       be responsible for offering ten sessions of the workshop in Eastern NC.  When offering the workshop, each Facilitator will be teamed with a K-5 Regional Lead Teacher.  Workshop offerings will begin June 26-28 and will end July 24-26.  The first Workshop offering will be used as a training session for K-5 Regional Lead Teachers who will be assisting in the offering to K-5 Lead Teachers.

 

  •        be responsible for revising and updating the two NC-PIMS K-5 Workshops Algebraic Reasoning and Reading for Mathematical Competency in Number and Operation during two weeks in the summer.  The first week, June 18-22, 1-2 Regional Lead Teachers will offer each workshop to the Workshop Development Team (those Facilitators with prior experience in offering the workshop).  On the last day of the first week, the Development Team will separate into two working groups:  An Algebra Group, chaired by Kathy Harris, and a Reading Group, chaired by Alice Brown.  After a gap of several weeks in which there will be assigned readings and tasks, the two groups will meet for a week to complete the development process.

Leadership Team

Carol Midgett (Team Leader)--Joyce Hodges, Elfreda Robinson and Sherman Sumpter

 

The Leadership Team will

 

  •        be responsible for designing two days of spring professional development for all NC-PIMS Lead Teachers with a focus on Building Classroom Communities of Mathematical Inquiry and Learning.

An emphasis will be placed on listening to, and observing What Mathematics Students Know and Building on Students’ Thinking to Promote and Extend Learning.

The first six-hour session will be offered on Saturdays in February, March and April in 10-12 multiple offerings.  The second session will be offered to all Lead Teachers on one day altogether at a central location.

All Facilitators will serve as a Review Team for both the detailed outline of the workshop and of the nearly completed workshop—the latter to be done as a pilot and training session over a two day period.

 

  •         will be responsible for designing a ten-day summer workshop for new Lead Teachers. 

Based on district interest and commitment, the training will be available in up to three locations.  The sessions will be offered in on location on June 18-29 and in two locations on July 9-20. 

In addition to the Facilitators who are not involved in its creation, the draft of the New Lead Teacher Workshop outline and workshop will be reviewed by a Team of three to four Regional Lead Teachers and District Specialists.  Regional Lead Teachers  (a new concept for NC-PIMS) will be invited to serve in a special role to work with Facilitators in this phase of the development of workshops.
