Foundations for Early Childhood Mathematics 2016-2017

The KCM Foundations for Early Childhood Mathematics (Formerly K-EEMC) professional development features content developed by the Erikson Institute, leaders in early childhood education. Participants will learn how to spark children's mathematical learning though developmentally appropriate exploration, discussion and activity using high-impact, evidence-based strategies and children's literature which support the teaching and learning of early mathematics.

The KCM Foundations for Early Childhood Mathematics training includes 8 half-day training sessions. Upon registering, participants are expected to attend all eight half-day sessions.

In addition, the KCM will be offering an optional extension opportunity during the 2016-17 academic year. Four additional half-day sessions are available for several cohorts (indicated below). These extension sessions will occur in the afternoons of the regularly scheduled course sessions. Topics to be explored will include Math Teaching Practices (MTPs) in the early childhood classroom, professional noticing, and other content relevant to the development of participants’ instructional decision making. Extension dates are optional, but we do encourage your participation for an additional opportunity to explore the Foundations for Early Childhood Mathematics.

Registration for all 2016-2017 cohorts for the Foundations for Early Childhood Mathematics has ended and is no longer available. To be notified about future offerings of this professional learning experience, register here.

Foundations Course for Primary

Foundations for Primary Grades (formerly EERTI) cohorts are professional learning communities that grow K-3 teachers' understanding of early numeracy development and improve their abilities for establishing in students strong foundations for fluently adding and subtracting. As a member of a Foundations for Primary Grades cohort, participants will receive specialized training from an experienced math intervention teacher featuring evidence-based strategies and materials from experts in early numeracy development. Cohort facilitators will provide support to each educator as new strategies and methods are utilized in the classroom.

Mathematics Content Coaching

For 2016-17, KCM has once again partnered with the Kentucky Department of Education to offer Mathematics Content Coaching professional learning experiences (PLE) with Master Coach, Anne Burgunder

Mathematics Content Coaching is designed to provide mathematics instructional coaches and administrators with job-embedded, learning opportunities that are aimed at initiating profound, sustainable, school-wide improvements in teaching and learning. The content coaching model works to build a school culture that has a shared understanding of how to engage students in learning mathematics through well-designed learning tasks and activities. All participants will observe a master coach as she co-plans with a teacher, co-teaches a mathematics lesson in a classroom, and then debriefs the lesson. The intended outcome of the KCM Mathematics Content Coaching PLE is to increase student achievement in mathematics and implement successful mathematics intervention by maximizing the impact of a mathematics coach.

Foundations for Middle Grades 6/7

KCM is proud to partner with the Kentucky Department of Education to offer middle school educators this year-long experience. This PLE will allow middle school educators to gain a greater understanding of how 6th and 7th grade students learn mathematics, evidence-based intervention strategies for use with students who are struggling, and resources and professional knowledge for identifying and analyzing student misconceptions.

For this PLE, administrators are encouraged to attend the Day 4 session alongside their teacher(s). Administrators, who attend Day 4 of the PLE, will leave the session better equipped to outline a school vision for the instruction that should be taking place in all of their mathematics classrooms. Pending approval, administrators will be offered EILA credit for their attendance. Administrators should also register for this PLE offering using the "More Information & Registration" links below.
