The Idaho Regional Mathematics Center at the University of Idaho, in conjunction with Boise State University, invites you to apply for the MoDAL Summer Institute. Modeling and Data Analysis Literacy (MoDAL) is a four-day professional development workshop in the content area of secondary data analysis and statistics, followed by 3 cycles of blended-format (face-to-face and hybrid) collaboration sessions during the 2017-2018 school year for secondary mathematics teachers in Idaho. Carefully crafted contexts support connections both within and across grades 6-12 mathematics standards.
The MoDAL Summer Institute will be held June 26-29, 2017, with 40 teachers, followed by classroom teaching during the 2017-2018 academic year; follow-up cycle dates to be determined. MoDAL Summer Institute offers teachers chances to work closely with peers to engage with rich tasks, analyze thinking, consider teaching practices and tailor curriculum for their classroom. The purpose is to build knowledge and skills needed to effectively teach secondary statistics ideas while creating high-quality, web-based curriculum for teachers.
The MoDAL Summer Institute will be facilitated by:
● Dr. Michele Carney, Assistant Professor, CIFS, Boise State University
● Dr. Joe Champion, Assistant Professor, Mathematics, Boise State University
● Dr. Julie Amador, Research Associate Professor, Curriculum and Instruction, University of Idaho
● Dr. Abe Wallin, Regional Mathematics Specialist, University of Idaho
In order to participate as a teacher in the professional development, an applicant must:
● be employed by a public school in Idaho for the 2017-2018 school year
● expect to have a classroom teaching or co-teaching assignment in Grades 6-12
● complete a brief application, including a promise of support from a supervisor
