Based on KCI’s well established FAME program for middle and high school teachers, EMPowered helps build your math content expertise for teaching 4th-5th graders, as well as introduces tools and methodologies to use in your classroom to engage students in math. You will explore the eight mathematical practices while also learning how to use computer and web-based technologies to support teaching and learning. you will explore operations and algebraic thinking, fraction and base ten number and operation concepts, measurement data and geometry with an emphasis on topics that students often find challenging, while learning how to use technologies to support teaching and learning of mathematics.

The EMPowered program consists of an orientation in the spring, and a summer institute comprised of six face-to face days with the remaining 24 hours of the summer program conducted online. After the summer institute, the learning and professional development continues in the academic year program with four EMPowered follow-up sessions designed to help you implement instructional changes, discuss real experiences, develop best practices, build a professional learning community, and address additional math content and technology topics.
