    Our experience as teachers, coaches, and leaders in education has been such that our most powerful professional learning occurs when we are allowed time to collaborate with others. This is imperative to develop and sustain relationships that challenge and support our common vision of mathematics teaching and learning. These supportive relationships not only help us grow professionally, but also allow us the opportunity to alter our practice in a safe space and to deepen our understanding of mathematical content and professional pedagogy. Macomb County needs you to lead the vision with your teachers.

    The Common Core State Standards emphasize that children should spend large amounts of time writing across the three text types: narrative, informational and opinion. In addition, as students’ progress through the grade levels they should be able to demonstrate an increase in sophistication with using language, vocabulary and syntax to develop and organize their ideas within the three text types. During this event, teachers will learn to support children in their journey to become independent with the writing process (generating ideas, drafting, revising and editing) as well as the application of this process to their daily writing. This three day event will serve as an introduction to both the basics of a writing workshop format as well as an introduction to the MAISA Writing Units. This course is a prerequisite for several other events throughout the year.
