Mathematics Learning Community (MLC)
Regional Science Resource Center in Shrewsbury, MA

Facilitator Training Overview
The Mathematics Learning Community is an exciting form of
job-embedded, ongoing K-8 professional development that is focused on
student learning. The MLC uses student work as a means to connect
professional development to the classroom and stimulate authentic
discussions about how students learn mathematics with the goal of
improving students' understanding of mathematics.
During Facilitator Training, you will become a member of a model MLC
in which you will experience the format and math content of MLC
Sessions 1 -10 and engage in thoughtful discussions about math
metacognition and problem solving strategies. In addition, you will
also view video clips ofMLC's in action, discuss facilitation
dilemmas, and learn how to select student work samples to share with
your MLC. Opportunities for practice facilitation and district
collaboration will be available throughout the training.
You will attend MLC Facilitator Training with K -8 math teacher
leaders, coaches and specialists from other schools and districts.
You will also receive both electronic and on-site support as you
implement the MLC back in your own school.
