MOVE IT Math™ Institute
July 8 and 9 - this is the math program that will have all your students loving math and excelling at phenomenal rates! Please read Anne Shaw's personal statement about using this program in her elementary classrooms!
In 2002, only 23 percent of the fourth-grade class at Herndon Elementary in Washington Park met or exceeded the state' standards in math. That figure jumped to 80 percent in 2003 after implementing MOVE IT, Math!!
MOVE IT, Math is absolutely the best program - not only for raising math scores (which it will) but for developing children's conceptual understandings of mathematical principles! Instead of students fearing math, feeling that they are not smart and believing that they cannot do math, your students will love math, believe they are geniuses and their achievements will astound them, their parents and you!
MOVE IT, Math! is . . . easy . . . fun . . . effective . . . inexpensive! Forget about the mind-numbing worksheets, the nonsensical drilling, math disconnected from real life and meaning, students learning to hate math and believing they are stupid!

The Roosevelt Hotel, in the French Quarter
Our policy is to honor the "whole educator". Just as the intentional design of the learning environment is important for our schools, so the learning environment should be beautiful, comfortable, inspiring and nourishing for quality professional development. We offer our Regional Workshops in places that are filled with opportunities to learn, play and discover - architecture, history, culture, the arts, nature, dining, shopping and much more! Our venues over the years have ranged from Star Trek, the Experience in Las Vegas to Manhattan and to Pensacola Beach!
The French Quarter of New Orleans is the backdrop for the Summer Institute 2014. You will be immersed in a pastiche of cultures, history, dining, architecture, religion, art, music and more. Check the links here to see what you can experience. Not only will the experience be educational and invigorating for you, but you will take home with you many new resources to enrich your curriculum and instruction - from the workshop and from the experiences of the French Quarter! Laissez le bon temps rouler!
