Summer Learning in NYC

TPS mathematics specialist Abby Gordon has spent July in a master's degree program called Leadership in Mathematics Education at Bank Street in New York City.  Students  take courses during the July term at Bank Street for three summers and complete Supervised Fieldwork along with independent projects, papers, and research during the two intervening academic years.

Abby writes, "Bank Street is very progressive (founded on Dewey's ideas of experiential learning). It's a great fit with TPS. It's very intense (six courses in the month of July), but I love it so far!"
