Program: RPDC - Southeast

Location: 1 Southeast Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Cape Girardeau, MO) [map]

Dates: 9/12/2017 to 9/13/2017

Scores of students hate and fear mathematics, so they end up leaving school without an understanding of basic mathematical concepts. Their evasion and departure hinders math-related pathways and STEM career opportunities. Research has shown very clear methods to change this phenomena, but the information has been confined to research journals - until now.

Join us in this series of workshops based upon the continuing research of Dr. Jo Boaler. Each participant will be given a copy of Mathematical Mindsets, which provides a proven, practical roadmap to mathematics success for all students.

Program: RPDC - Southeast

Location: 1 Southeast Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Cape Girardeau, MO) [map]

Dates: 9/28/2017

New
The simple answer is that is is BOTH! It's not a "special education" thing and it's not a "general education" thing - It's a "Free and Appropriate Public Education" (FAPE) thing. The best education involves breaking down barriers and working together for individual students to achieve. This is also a requirement of the federal and state regulations. It is imperative that we train special educators, general educators, administrators (and others) together so that myths can be busted! Please register for each meeting separately.

Participants are encouraged to bring a current IEP and evaluation report so that they can review their documents as we look at common issues related to compliance.
