Interns work directly with on-site supervisors (mentors), home-school principals, or other principals, supervisors, or agency administrators on specified objectives for the number of clock hours designated in a signed agreement. The mentor or campus supervisor approves all experiences used for the completion of objectives. At least one reading is selected to facilitate the achievement of each objective in the internship. Reflections on the experiences, the readings, and the relationship between the two are recorded in a log, which is regularly reviewed by the on-site and campus supervisors.

InterMath is a professional development effort designed to support teachers in becoming better mathematics educators. It focuses on building teachers' mathematical content knowledge through mathematical investigations that are supported by technology. InterMath includes a workshop component and materials to support instructors. For each of the following problems, consider how you would pose the same problem to your students. Would the wording need to change? Would you need to include more pictures? More detailed pictures? But remember we don't want to do TOO MUCH for the student. If we provide too much information, they will not need to think about what the question is asking.

Algebra teachers, Juliana Jones and Marlo Warburton, have common philosophies and expectations in their algebra classrooms but use their own unique teaching styles and structures to create consistent experiences for students. Collaboration is an important part of that process and allows teachers to provide common learning experiences in their classrooms despite different teaching styles and structures. This video takes a look at the warm-up, lesson, strategies for group work, classroom expectations and routines to discuss commonalities but also identify ways in which each teacher personalizes their classrooms based on their own teaching style and personality.

This video workshop for high school American literature teachers introduces techniques for reading cultural, political, and religious artifacts and connecting them to the literature they teach. In each video program, experts in multiple disciplines do close analysis of a wide range of visual, print, and physical artifacts. The experts engage on-camera teachers in a discussion of the artifacts and how they can enhance the study of works of literature. These teachers then use artifacts with their own students to help deepen their understanding of the historical, political, and social contexts of the literature they read. Throughout the workshop, participants will learn and practice a six-step process for choosing and using artifacts successfully with their students.

This video workshop provides new ideas about working with the arts for K-5 classroom and arts specialist teachers. The eight one-hour video programs show workshop leaders from the Southeast Center for Education in the Arts working with Learner Teams Ń teachers, principals, and arts specialists Ń from three elementary schools. The Learner Teams work through a curriculum unit based on a multi-arts performance piece by Cirque du Soleil. Classroom segments show schoolchildren engaged in the same lessons. Learner Team members then begin to design their own arts-based units, and return to their schools to put into practice what they learned. Web and print materials provide context and activities for using the videos in workshop sessions. Audio and video demonstration materials needed to teach the classroom lessons in Programs 1-4 can be found on the Classroom Demonstration Materials videotape, which is provided free to buyers of the set of workshop videotapes.

The assessment module is meant for use either after completion of the project-based learning module or with participants who are familiar with project-based learning. The module is designed for a two to three hour class or session, divided into two parts.Part One, Guided Process, is designed to give participants a brief introduction to assessment. It answers the questions "Why is Assessment Important?"; "What are Some Types of Assessment?"; and "How Do Rubrics Help?" The Guided Process includes the Assessment Resources section and a PowerPointхи presentation, including presenter notes. This presentation can be shown directly from the Web site or can be downloaded for use as a stand-alone slide show. The video segment, "Assessment Overview" demonstrates assessment in action at various schools. The Assessment Resources section contains additional examples of assessment in action (Urban Academy, Mountlake Terrace High School, and Assessing Project-Based Work).Part Two, Group Participation, assigns readings and activities for experiential, project-based learning. Ideally, the tasks will be accomplished using group collaboration and with the use of technology.Specific ISTE NETS Standards have been addressed in this module.
