-The KCM Staff
In June 2017, KCM will offer the Middle School Mathematics Summer Institute! This institute will consist of two professional learning opportunities for middle school (6-8) educators. Both of these PLEs (professional learning experiences) are funded by the Kentucky Department of Education and are designed to provide cross-district collaboration and professional growth among middle school math teachers.
Participants in the 2017 Middle School Summer Institute may choose to attend the one-day PLE, the two day PLE, or all three days (both PLEs). If possible, we highly recommend attending all three days. The dates/topics will be:
More information about each of these PLEs can be found below. You will be prompted to choose which dates you would like to attend on the "Packages" page during the registration process.

Two-day PLE - Wednesday & Thursday June 14 & 15
Purposefully Designing a Thinking Culture in Middle School Math Classrooms
Start next school year with a specific plan for cultivating a classroom/school culture focused on mathematical habits of mind and the big ideas of middle school mathematics.
Join KCM and master teacher, Anne Burgunder, for this two-day PLE that will provide middle school educators with opportunities to design classroom environments that cultivate mathematical habits of mind in students and help them think about mathematics the way mathematicians do. We will explore how to intentionally create learning settings where students can be pattern sniffers, experimenters, describers, tinkerers, inventors, visualizers, conjecturers, and guessers.
Start-off the 2017-18 school year with a plan in place for how you will establish or enhance a thinking culture in your middle school math classrooms. A culture where students and teachers focus less on what they are supposed to do next and more on actively making sense of mathematics. Participants will learn how to:
