The Summer Institute will offer teachers practical tools to support student learning of mathematics. Teachers will participate in break-out sessions by strand (K-2, 3-4, 5-7) to explore high cognitive demand tasks, and instructional strategies that support students in solving complex problems.
This residential experience, in the heart of the Laurentians, will be led by top professionals in the field of Mathematics teaching. Outside of the PD sessions, you may enjoy the facilities at the Manoir Saint-Sauveur, and meet with colleagues from across the province.
If you are reading this information as a potential first time participant, do consider asking your administrator to participate - invite him or her, along with a fellow teacher or two. If a school team isn’t a possibility for you but you have approval of your school Board/Association, then we welcome you to register and look forward to meeting and learning with you - August 7-10, 2018.
This retreat-based Professional Development is FREE for teachers!
LCEEQ will cover the cost of:
- Registration for the 4 days of the Summer Institute.
- Room and board (3 meals per day) for the duration of the Summer Institute, based on double occupancy.
(Stay in a single room for a fee of $75/night; you may have up to 3 guests per room. Meals for guests are not included but food options are available for purchase, if desired – see the hotel registration for details.)
Given that the last session will end on a Friday afternoon, a high traffic time in the area, anyone from afar who wishes to stay at the Manoir Saint-Sauveur until Saturday morning will be accommodated as per the rates above (no charge for double occupancy – an addition charge of $75 for single or family occupancy). All such requests must be approved in advance.
