Jeromie Whalen, a master’s student in our learning, media and technology program, and a technology teacher at Northampton High School, was featured in an article in The Daily Hampshire Gazette. Whalen worked with students at NHS to build the Northampton school district’s new web site that Superintendent John Provost says has prompted calls from other superintendents who wanted to be connected to the web site “vendor.” “I’ve found many of our colleagues to be quite surprised when they hear our vendor is our teachers and students,” Provost said. http://www.gazettenet.com/With-student-and-teacher-help-Northampton-schools-get-new-website-13612750

An article by Sandra Madden, associate professor, mathematics, science and learning technologies, and graduate student Alicia Gonzalez, was published in the November/December issue of Mathematics Teacher, a journal of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. This Focus Issue on “Nurturing Persistent Problem Solvers” offers stories that illustrate how to nurture persistence and “inculcate in students the experience of feeling ... the thrill of overcoming difficulties.” Madden and Gonzalez’ article, “Heart Work,” identifies some keys for teachers to use in supporting students in becoming persistent problem solvers. http://www.nctm.org/Publications/Mathematics-Teacher/2017/Vol111/Issue3/

The Mathematics Teacher is devoted to improving mathematics instruction from grade 8-14 and supporting teacher education programs. It provides a forum for sharing activities and pedagogical strategies, deepening understanding of mathematical ideas, and linking mathematics education research to practice.

Professor emerita Sonia Nieto has been named the recipient of the James R. Squire Award by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). One of NCTE’s most distinguished awards, it is given in recognition of outstanding service, not only to the stature and development of the council and the discipline which it represents, but also to the profession of education as a whole. It is reserved for an NCTE member who has had a transforming
influence and has made a lasting intellectual contribution to the profession. This prestigious award has only been bestowed 21 times since its inception in 1967.

The award will be presented to Nieto at the 2017 National Council of Teachers of Education convention in November.

As seen in your email: Dear TECS graduate students,

The search committee for the Director of Secondary Teacher Education is recruiting a graduate student member. Participation on this committee would be a great opportunity to learn about the faculty search process from the inside. Please be aware that the workload on faculty search committees is typically quite heavy (in this case, especially from about mid-October through about February), but it can also be a valuable learning opportunity and an opportunity to shape the future of our department and secondary teacher education programs.

If you would like to nominate yourself for membership on this committee, please send an email to Kysa Nygreen, [email protected], with a brief (one-paragraph) explanation of your reasons for wanting to participate, and attach a copy of your CV. Self-nominations must be received by the end of business on Friday, September 22. You may email me if you have any additional questions.

Best,
Kysa Nygreen (search committee chair)
