Event Description

Geometry in Construction (GiC) is a high school program, begun in 2005 in Loveland, CO, that integrates contextualized learning into both geometry and construction classes which are taken simultaneously by high school students. Geometry and Construction Technology teachers work collaboratively to integrate the curricula and instruction throughout the year. Presented by Tom Moore and Scott Burke, developers and instructors of the original GiC program, this four-day professional development provides teachers with the year-long curriculum needed to replicate the GiC program in Texas schools. Teachers will take part in hands-on lessons integrating mathematics with construction directly from the GiC curriculum.

Visit the Contextual Learning Concepts webpage for additional details: http://contextuallc.com/geometry-in-construction/
