19th Michigan Council of Teachers of Mathematics (MCTM) Online Book Club
The MCTM book club began the week of February 12, 2018 and will last for seven weeks. Each week, the book club reads and discusses one of the chapters. Questions are added to a Google Doc and emailed to club members at the beginning of the week. Club members have the week to read, reflect, and respond if they would like.
The book club will study Routines for Reasoning: Fostering the Mathematical Practices in all Students by Grace Kelemanik, Amy Lucenta, and Susan Janssen Creighton.
There is no cost to join the book club, other than the cost of the book.
If you would like to join, or have additional questions, contact Kevin Dykema.
Michigan's New Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) Teacher Network
The STEM Teacher Network is a community-driven professional learning community that connects STEM instructors across Michigan. Members can interact through the online community or join in on monthly live, online meetings. Each meeting will focus on a specific topic (such as free resources, class routines, or fundraising) and will feature a panel of fellow STEM teachers who are knowledgeable about that particular topic.
The first online meeting was held in October. Live sessions will continue on the second Tuesday of each month.
Sign up to receive the STEM Teacher Network updates including an invitation to join the online community.
