SREB annually convenes thousands of K-12 teachers, counselors, principals, technology center directors and state and district education agency personnel at our national conferences, forums, workshops, webinars and more.
What makes our events special? We bring teachers and leaders together to learn and share research-based, classroom-tested tools and strategies that address the real problems they face.
Before, during or after this year’s events, if you have a question, we’re here to help – just let us know.
In the meantime, here are answers to questions we’re frequently asked.
Adrienne Dumas has heard it from kids for years, like so many teachers and parents: “I just don’t have a math brain.”
A math teacher at Northwest Rankin High School in Flowood, Mississippi, Dumas disagrees, and with good reason — her Algebra 1 and geometry students have a 100 percent passing rate for the past three years on the state test. Dumas and other teachers offer their tips for math success in a recent SREB High Schools That Work newsletter.
Joy Hofmeister, Oklahoma State Superintendent of Schools, visited Moore High School in December to look at its technology program. And she did, but she also got a pleasant surprise when principal Mike Coyle showed her to an Algebra 2 classroom.
Mathematics department chair Nancy Nix reported that the superintendent was “blown away by the level of student engagement and mathematical discourse.”
Too many students graduate high school without the foundational literacy and math skills needed to succeed in postsecondary education and careers. This can change if students are exposed to literacy and math practices that expose them to the types of grade-level assignments that will advance their achievement and prepare them for college and careers.
SREB offers professional development to teachers in powerful literacy and math practices that produce positive results. Read about survey results of more than 37,000 students.
Making Math Matter
High-Quality Assignments That Help Students Solve Problems and Own Their Learning
This report presents results of teacher and student surveys on how powerful Mathematics Design Collaborative practices are shifting how teachers teach. It also summarizes student achievement data from schools using the strategies in four states. In vignettes and testimonials, teachers who completed SREB professional development on MDC share how they have grown as teachers and how their students’ understanding of math concepts has improved.
SREB invites states seeking to join its Making Schools Work network of middle grades schools, high schools and technology centers to choose from three state membership levels.
