In response to demand, Maths Recovery (Ireland) in conjunction with Monaghan Education Centre invites primary schools who are interested in having teachers trained in Mata sa Rang to apply for inclusion in this programme.
The overall aim of this project is to train teachers in the approaches drawn from the Maths Recovery Programme in order to support in-class approaches to numeracy. In 2018/19, there will be two modules available.
Module 1: The content of this module will be broadly aimed at first class (much of the content is applicable to Infants or second class: Number Words and Numerals; Structuring Number; Early Addition & Subtraction).
Module 2: The content of this module will be broadly aimed at third class (much of the content is applicable to second or fourth class: Conceptual Place Value; Addition & Subtraction to 100 and beyond; Multiplication & Division).
In order to participate in this project schools are requested to commit to the following:
- Support the teacher to practice instruction/assessments
- Pay costs of core text and content booklet, print materials, CD, tutor costs, refreshments and support (€200 per teacher) payable to Monaghan Education Centre. Costs will be payable on confirmation of your teacher/s place. See list below of materials included in the cost.
Participating teachers will be expected to:
- Attend and participate in all training; complete school-based tasks; and complete a reflective journal/brief report.
Training will take place in Monaghan Education Centre and will be over 15 hours, delivered as five 3-hour sessions out of school time. A certificate of completion will be awarded.
If you need clarity on any aspect of the proposed project, please contact me in the centre.
