Lesson Study and Professional Development with local school districts
Lesson study is a communal professional development run by teachers for teachers. Lesson study relies upon teachers pooling their experiences in order to develop a lesson that will directly effect the students from their own classrooms. In this way, the results of lesson study are unique to the community of teachers who engage in the lesson study.

This free monthly event offers the teaching community in the region a great opportunity to network and to work together to solve interesting and accessible mathematics problems. Each evening starts with dinner and some time to mingle, and then we get to the main course: the math problem! Our focus is to introduce you to problems that are accessible to all teachers from kindergarten through high school, yet are interesting and challenging enough to spend hours investigating. This is particularly relevant as we aim to engage our own students in creative mathematical thinking and equip them with the tools they need to problem solve and persevere.

The Early Teaching Experiences in Mathematics and Science (ETEMS) scholarship program offers CSUSB students who have completed their first year of their coursework in their major a unique opportunity to explore K-12 STEM teaching. Participants will spend at least 20 hours working with peers and a faculty advisor to plan a lesson and learn about what goes into effective teaching, as well as 20 hours observing K-12 classrooms and ultimately teaching their lesson in a K-12 classroom. Through this immersive experience, participants gain a deeper understanding of what is involved in a teaching career and can then use this knowledge to make an informed decision about pursuing a career as a K-12 teacher. You have the option of participating in the program for either one or two semesters and would be eligible for a scholarship each semester.
The following documents must be submitted to the CEME office via email, firstname.lastname@example.org, by the end of each semester.
