I highly recommend CPS teachers try to visit this workshop. Margaret was a
mentor to me early in my CPS days, and has some tremendous ideas about how
teachers can collaborate to make teaching and learning easier and better.
You're sure to leave energized!

Subject: 10/2 IMSE Colloquium by Margaret Small - Please Post

The following is an announcement about an upcoming colloquium
sponsored by the Institute for Mathematics and Science Education
(IMSE) of the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Supporting Teacher Change: The Chicago Secondary Mathematics
Improvement Project and the Development of Teacher Leadership
Margaret Small
Young Women's Leadership Charter School

o       Thursday, October 4, 2001
o       3:30-5:00 p.m.
o       Room 2087 Science and Engineering Laboratories (SEL)

After almost a decade of availability of mathematics reform curricula
created with support of the National Science Foundation and based on
the NCTM Standards, high school mathematics teachers in Chicago
continue to face an uphill struggle in making their mathematics
classes an environment for a challenging, engaging and successful
experience for the majority of students. The Chicago Mathematics
Improvement Project (CSMIP) has worked for the past 5 years providing
workshops and ongoing support for teachers using the Interactive
Mathematics Program. We will look at teachers' comments on how this
experience has affected their teaching and how they envision the
challenges they currently face.  Dr. Small was co-Principal
Investigator of CSMIP.

Call (312) 996-2448 for travel instructions more information about
the colloquium.
