 Mathematics Specialists in International Schools (MSIS) K-8

MSIS is a two-year Mathematics Specialist program for K-8 teachers, facilitated by Erma Anderson.  The program is a coherent sequence of five Institutes designed to expand teachers’ understanding of the Common Core Standards, how students learn that content, evidence of student understanding, and how to work with peers in a mentoring relationship.

The Institutes are five three day face-to-face institutes hosted by SCIS. 

Upon completion of all five institutes, participants will be awarded a Math Specialist Certificate through the Office of Overseas Schools’ AERO Project. 

The ACAMIS Bulletin Board contains events that are organized by ACAMIS member schools for staff at ACAMIS member schools.  While these events are not organized by ACAMIS, it is in keeping with our mission to connect member schools with people.  The event will remain posted until registration closes.

ACAMIS BULLETIN BOARD
November 9-12, 2017 – Shanghai Community International School
A four-day introduction to the WIDA English Language Development standards framework and assessments, this WIDA Institute will help schools to build capacity for a systemic approach to serving ELLs using the WIDA resource. 

Here are what teachers have shared:
"The importance of Academic Language for ELLs is something that we have been working on for a couple of years, and the WIDA Academy helped to confirm that we are on the right track. Also, it was great to have a complete overview of WIDA: it's not just about the assessment tool!" 

"I learned very much in a short amount of time. I was really appreciative of the staff for helping us think about how we can teach others about WIDA and how to implement it in our schools."

The ACAMIS Bulletin Board contains events that are organized by ACAMIS member schools for staff at ACAMIS member schools.  While these events are not organized by ACAMIS, it is in keeping with our mission to connect member schools with people.  The event will remain posted until registration closes.
