Establishing Instructional Routines: Upcoming IM Professional Learning

IM K-5 Math Establishing Instructional Routines
Have you heard? The IM K-5 Math Establishing Instructional Routines professional learning session just went live across the United States this past week! Teachers considered, “What is an instructional routine? Which routines are used in the curriculum? Why are they used in the curriculum?” as they experienced a few together.
As the initial feedback pours in, MMSLN is thrilled to be offer the session to Michigan educators this month!

“The energy the session creates with teachers is marvelous!”

MISciPLN 4/16 – REGISTER TODAY!

Does teaching elementary science take necessary time from important things like, reading and social emotional learning? What if teachers are provided high quality resources and professional learning, would it make a difference?

Find out on April 16th, when MISciPLN will welcome its founding sponsor, CREATE for STEM’s Joe Krajcik and Sue Codere. They will join us to share their long awaited, elementary research highlighting the public introduction of 3rd-5th grade Multiple Literacies in Project Based Learning (MLPBL).

Even if we could provide great resources and professional learning, how can we get schools to support the transformation to NGSS in a systemic way?

Don Peurach, from the University of Michigan, will also be joining us to share his team’s research findings for Designing School Systems to Support NGSS. The implications of this research will have a direct impact on our work in districts.

We would love for you to join us as these exciting findings are used to build a foundation to inform our collective conversation around elementary science advocacy.

Register today for the April 16 MISciPLN event.

New podcast explores the extension of three-dimensional learning to higher education.

Only a few months separate a high school senior and a college freshman, but for many students in STEM courses that transition can be jarring! At its core, our group believes in the power and potential of 3-dimensional learning (3DL) as described in the National Research Council’s Framework for K-12 Science Education and in its fundamental applicability to higher education. Our "base" is Michigan State University, but we are a multi-institution team including members from Grand Valley State University and others outside of Michigan (3dl4us.org).

Our new podcast (we went with the straightforward naming option: "3DL4US Podcast") aims to provide an accessible and wide-ranging exploration of the group’s experiences with 3DL in different contexts, from discipline-specific considerations to thoughts about how to support spread and sustainability. We hope it is a substantive and fun listen! Find it on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or on Buzzsprout (https://3dl4uspodcast.buzzsprout.com/).

MMSLN: 1 of 13 New Providers Added to Support School Systems in Curriculum Adoption and Implementation

MMSLN is a new partner featured in Rivet Education’s Professional Learning Partner Guide (PLPG). The PLPG provides educators with better access to information about professional learning providers and their services. Akin to EdReports’ reviews of high-quality instructional materials, the PLPG is a list of organizations that provide the best curriculum-aligned professional learning services in the country.

Research shows that when teachers have great materials and high-quality professional learning aligned to those materials, student achievement increases and classroom inequity is reduced. –Alexa Obregon, manager of the PLPG

The PLPG helps to ensure educators have the instructional materials and professional learning they deserve by:

  • growing the demand for high-quality professional learning in schools and districts, and
  • improving the overall quality of the professional learning marketplace by highlighting the best professional learning partners.

With this update, the PLPG added 13 new professional learning organizations (MMSLN is one of them), bringing the total number of providers featured in the guide to 29. Overall, the collective group provides professional learning services aligned to 70 percent of the curriculum rated “green” on EdReports across all 50 states.

The addition of Rivet’s Professional Learning Partner Guide to the curriculum marketplace means that education leaders now have important information about the quality of instructional materials and a list of organizations that can be considered to support their implementation. -Eric Hirsch, Executive Director of EdReports

MMSLN hosts professional learning to support the LAUNCH of IM Math. Check out all that we have scheduled for this spring and summer. And, if you register before April 1, you can take advantage of a 20% Early Bird discount. We can’t wait to partner with you.
