Join ASSET STEM Education for a no-cost Professional Development program to foster student engagement, proficiency and achievement in mathematics. 




This program will push the boundaries of traditional teaching strategies and challenge educators to cultivate a learning experience embedded with authentic, inquiry-based teaching & learning. During this course, middle-grade (5-8) math educators will explore mathematical practices and standards, sample student engagement activities, examine trends in mathematical proficiency, and develop strategies for student growth.  


The program includes:
• Two days of in-person professional development (12 hours of Act 48 credits)
• Classroom implementation and in-school coaching  
• Half-day debrief and reflection (3 hours of Act 48 credits)

“It is one of life’s greatest callings to be an educator and to work diligently to make positive differences in the lives of children. To do that, we need to rethink education to make it student-centered and allow for multiple opportunities to challenge students to higher levels of thinking. Making these changes requires all of us to be constantly reflective and to continually refine our practice.”
