How Will Participants Be Selected?
Participation will be available to all middle school educators in Georgia, but teachers from historically undeserved schools will receive the top priority. Applications will be solicited from schools located within the service areas of the participating sites. (First year: University of Georgia, Kennesaw State University, and Valdosta State University.)
It is expected that a team of selected teachers will participate in the workshops and at least one administrator (building administrator, a school technology specialist, media specialist, instructional leader or a district level administrator) will participate in a minimum of 20 hours of professional development. It is also imperative that each teacher member has classroom Internet access and there is e-mail access for all team members. Teams with a minimum of one teacher of mathematics from each grade level (4-8) represented in the school will be receive priority.
[Note: In districts in which more than one school applies and is accepted, the same individual may serve as the district level administrator for the selected teams.]
InterMath participants need to check with the site at which they will be participating to determine what type of credit they will receive. Credit could be in the form of graduate credit or Staff Development Units depending on the institution. If graduate credit will be offered, participants must apply and be admitted to the graduate school at that particular institution.
