ATC - Advanced Teacher Capacity

ATC_logo

Advanced Teacher Capacity offers professional development in mathematics, statistics, and modeling for mathematics teachers in Grades 9-12 to prepare them for four years of high school mathematics for all students.  The project is funded by a grant from the Improving Teacher Quality Program administered by the Ohio Board of Regents.

 


 

AFTERSCHOOL ATC WORKSHOP SESSIONS:  The ATC project is offering afterschool QUANT and Modspar professional development sessions on the following Wednesdays:

  • QUANT: 22 October, 19 November, 10 December 2014, and 21 January 2015
  • Modspar: 25 February, 18 March, 8 April, and 6 May 2015

The sessions will take place from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. at the Athens-Meigs Educational Service Center, 21 Birge Drive in Chauncey.  For more information and a downloadable flier, click here.  To register online for the sessions, click here.  To pay the registration fee online, click here.  Payment by check is accepted by mail and at the workshop site.  See the flier below for details.

QUANT focuses on data collection and analysis, probability, and statistics.

Tarasa Sheffield, Karen Rowe, Wei Lin, and Ray Breininger participate in a demonstration at the QUANT summer institute. SAVE THE DATES:  Sunday-Friday, June 14-19 and Monday-Tuesday, August 3-4, 2015.  
QUANT begins with a 1-week institute at Ohio University in Athens, with follow-up workshops in August and during the subsequent school year.  Participants will receive extensive online support including biweekly Webinars throughout the 2015-16 school year.  Registration will be available here soon, although payment of program fees will not be accepted until funding for the 2015-16 school year is announced in January 2015.

Modspar begins with a 1-week institute at Ohio University in Athens, with follow-up workshops in August and during the subsequent school year.  Participants will receive extensive online support including biweekly Webinars throughout the 2015-16 school year.  Registration will be available here soon, although payment of program fees will not be accepted until funding for the 2015-16 school year is announced in January 2015.

 


 

Here's what past ATC scholars have said:
"I enjoyed becoming more comfortable with the technology."
"The institutes were content-rich."
"Absolutely excellent."
"The BEST professional development available to high school (mathematics) teachers. The BEST model with follow-up."
"[Now]...I help my students to be critical thinkers by asking questions that are of high cognitive demand.  I also engage my students in team work and collaborative activities to help them develop their communicating skills.  In addition, I incorporate technology in my teaching so students can have multiple representations of ...concepts."
