This program is offered by the Krause Center for Innovation at Foothill College. In 2019, the KCI is offering only the blended FAME program for sixth through tenth grade teachers. THIS PROGRAM WILL TAKE PLACE IN ALAMEDA, CALIFORNIA.
Applications will be accepted online only at this website: http://bit.ly/applyfame19
Blended FAME consists of one orientation day (May 18, 2019 from 8:30am to 3:30pm), 5 face-to-face days (with the remainder of the summer program conducted online). Blended FAME also includes four follow-up sessions in the academic year. (Typically the follow-ups are held on a Saturday - once in October, once in November, once in February, and once in March). You will also take two additional FastTECH courses (LINC online) of your choice.
Teachers will explore ratios and proportional reasoning, expressions and equations, algebraic functions and transformational geometry concepts with an emphasis on topics that students often find challenging to master while also learning how to integrate computer and Internet technologies (e.g., GeoGebra, spreadsheet software, and virtual manipulatives) to support teaching and learning.
Eligibility This program is open to mathematics educators who teach in grades 6 - 12.
Participant Requirements • Attend the orientation day (5/18/19) all 5 days of face-to-face instruction ( 7/22, 7/23, 7/24, 7/25, and 7/26) and complete the other 30 hours of the program online by August 20. • Redesign math lessons or a unit of study during the summer institute that you will then subsequently teach in the Fall quarter. • Participate in four academic year follow-on sessions (usually one Saturday each in October, November, February, and March)• Sign up and attend two additional units of FastTECH (LINC) classes during Summer 2019, Fall 2019, and/or Winter 2020 quarters.• Support from school principal who is required to complete an online support form available at: bit.ly/FAME2019principal• Agree to take the Math Teaching survey before and after the summer institute and again at the end of the program. • Create an e-portfolio of work that documents teaching practice and student outcomes that the FAME team will use to help us determine if the program’s goals have been met.
