School Year 2021–2022

Special Events

MCMI is offering Special Events throughout the 2021–2022 school year.


Setting Norms for Student Collaboration 

Learning is social but group work can be challenging and still leave many out of the conversation. During this event, participants will challenge their group work norms with the goal of creating a powerful and equitable learning environment for all students. A teacher from the Complex Instruction Consortium will share their expertise during this session. ISBE Professional Development Hours will be provided.

Participants will meet face-to-face at [location to be determined] on [date to be determined] from 8:30 to 3:00. Lunch is included.


Working with your Peers to Promote Effective Change 

Are you supporting your colleagues through change efforts in your district? What concerns are rising to the surface as they implement changes in mathematics teaching and learning or begin to implement a new curriculum? During this session, participants will explore ways to identify dilemmas, address the needs of educators in various stages of the change process, and explore strategies to effectively interact with administrators and peers.

Participants will meet virtually on  [dates to be determined] from 12:00 to 3:00. 


Positioning Multilingual Learners 

It’s time to re-imagine what’s possible and celebrate the brilliance multilingual learners bring to today’s classrooms. Innovative teaching strategies can position these learners as leaders in mathematics. This session will focus on the principles and practices underlying Dr. Chval’s studies with English Language Learners — asset-based, empathy-based, practice-based and research-based. 

Participants will meet face-to-face at [location to be determined] on [date to be determined] from 8:30 to 3:00. Lunch is included.  


Registration will be available soon through Eventbrite.

Registration costs are listed in EventBrite. For districts participating in the MCMI PD Consortium, registration costs are covered by the terms of the contract.
