Highlights Foundation training

I think this will interest many of you. Michele

 Chances are if you're an educator, you're as good a storyteller—and regularly on the lookout for captivating math-centric stories to share with your children.

 Why not expand your reach and write those stories yourself? Who is better qualified to bring math concepts to children through great storytelling than you?

 It might be easier than you think. Especially since you know which topics appeal to kids and which math standards they need to meet at their grade level.

  Two of America's finest authors of math literature are coming to the Highlights Foundation to lead our February 15-18 workshop ( and help you deftly weave math and literature together like a pro.

Award-winning children's authors MW Penn (  and Loreen Leedy ( will present Writing that Counts: Discovering the Story in Math, a unique hands-on workshop that will show you how to write engaging stories using math concepts in ways that your students can understand and apply.

 Penn, respected children's poet and author of 2 Lines: A Story of Two Lines (Connecticut Press Club Communication Award) has published more than a dozen books combining math and literature. She speaks on a variety of topics at the state and national levels of NCTM. Leedy is author and illustrator of more than forty books for children, including Seeing Symmetry.

 Added bonuses? Our cozy campus in the Pocono Mountains, a tour of Highlights, our chef's farm-fresh meals, a chance to meet writers and educators in an intimate setting.

 I hope to see you at Highlights Foundation on February 15. You can register for the workshop by visiting our website <> . Questions? E-mail Jo Lloyd at, or call toll-free (877) 512-8365 to request an application.

 Please share this letter with your colleagues. Better yet, attend together! See you for a fun-filled February weekend of stories that matter and writing that counts.

Executive Director

Seeking Contract Curriculum Developer

SER Metro-Detroit is in the process of developing a Bridge program in the Advanced Manufacturing and Energy Efficiency/HVAC sectors. Bridge programs are defined as those that include the following key elements: contextualized instruction (basic reading, math, and language skills and industry/occupation knowledge); career development (career exploration and planning; understanding the world of work); and transition services (case management, financial and personal supports, tutoring). These programs have been proven successful in breaking down the obstacles that have long kept low-literacy adults from getting ahead economically. They are more effective than traditional adult education programs in quickly improving the basic skill levels of adults and assisting learners in transitioning to occupational training and employment along a career pathway.

SER is seeking the services of one or more contractors to develop two contextualized basic skills curricula by March 22nd, 2013. One curriculum will be taught in the context of careers in the manufacturing field and the other in the context of careers in the energy efficiency/HVAC field. Both should assist students in improving reading comprehension, writing and math skills while exposing them to concepts, practices and knowledge of the associated industry sector(s) in an integrated fashion. The ultimate goal of the curriculum is to prepare students to achieve the college entrance exam scores they need to place into occupational training programs; the contextualized basic skills training will “bridge” them into college.
