Interested in having a Bootstrap workshop for your school or district? This information will help us get a quote to you as soon as possible.
A 3-day Bootstrap PD begins with the cognitive challenges of algebra (including current research in the field and known best practices for instruction), a discussion of why computer programming is often not appropriate for math instruction, and a laser focus on the specific arenas where it can be a powerful teaching tool. From there, teachers participate in the entire Bootstrap course, working through the material with a master Bootstrap teacher while discussing pedagogy and differentiation. Time is reserved for teachers to discuss implementation and alignment, and to practice using some of the pedagogy and getting feedback from peers and Bootstrap staff. All teachers take home a working videogame, as well as a copy of their completed annotated student workbook.
