National Council of Teachers of Mathematics: Fostering Support of Mathematics Learning in Multilingual Classrooms (PreK-12)Deadline: November 1, 2019
Fostering Support of Mathematics Learning in Multilingual Classrooms grants provide financial assistance to PreK-12 schools to increase understanding and expertise in fostering support of multi-language development when teaching mathematics. The proposed project must explicitly support the implementation of equitable and rigorous mathematics teaching that incorporates students’ languages and cultures in their learning of mathematics. To this end, the proposed project should specifically address:
- The development of classroom materials with a consultant who has expertise in both teaching mathematics and teaching language
- The purchase of materials to implement professional learning with educators
Grants may cover costs for honoraria and expenses for consultants, materials, substitute time during the school day, teacher stipend after the school day, and conference or workshop registrations. While this grant does not fund the purchase of technology, proposals including professional development involving the use of technology to enhance student learning are encouraged.
Amount: One grant of $4,000 will be awarded to a school.
Eligibility: The applicant must have at least one current (on or before October 12, 2019) Essential or Premium member of NCTM or teach at a school with a current (on or before October 12, 2019) NCTM PreK-8 school membership. Additionally, the applicant must have at least one current member of TODOS (membership must be current on or before May 1, 2019) who teaches at the school.
