The campaign is providing women with grants of between $3,000 and $7,000 to enable participation in a range of leadership development programs.

Secondary Teaching and Learning Guides Updated

SSG

The senior secondary teaching and learning guides have been updated on the tki website:
http://seniorsecondary.tki.org.nz/…/Achievemen…/AOs-by-level

NZAMT, in association with the MOE and NZQA have created documents which will help mathematics teachers understand the changes that have been made and the implication it will have on teaching and learning.
The first of these documents is available here:
https://docs.google.com/…/1PGwxXMcCzhLBCqlVBL2iUw2e9T…/edit…
The unpacking of the standards documents for Levels 1 and 2 will be shared through workshops coming to all regions early in term 1.
Please keep an eye out for these workshops through this facebook page and NZAMT website.

 

NZ Primary Teachers' Conference

Kia ora teacher/kaiako

The Subject Associations (listed in the flyer) are excited to launch the first marketing push for the inaugral Primary Subject Teachers Conference.

The website it now live (www.nzptc.com) although please note  it is still in a construction phase, the organising committee are currently waiting on the website designers to complete work to make sure it is ready for viewing and functioning to receive registrations and workshop proposals. 

Please take time to check out the facebook (nzpstconference) and twitter pages (@NzPrimary), again please be aware that these platforms are in the initial planning and development phases and we will be starting to put more information on these over time. 

However, please take time to share the flyer, social websites and conference website with your school networks.

We only have a small window of opportunity to connect with schools and principals before they finalise their budgets for 2019, so I would appreciate everyone’s help with this first important marketing phase.

NZAMT logo rev

Kia ora
 
We are inviting you to fill in a google form:
 
There are 3 surveys for: Y1-6 teachers,  Y7-10 teachers, and  Y11-13 teachers. 
 
NZAMT and your regional Mathematics Associations have been funded for the next two years to support teachers and leaders within the Mathematics and Statistics learning area. As part of the support a national and regional Kaiārahi have been, or are being appointed across all regions of New Zealand. The national Kaiārahi is responsible for national and regional needs, the regional Kaiārahi is responsible for regional and local needs.

This survey is to assist the national and regional Kaiārahi to support teachers and schools through identifying national, regional and local needs.

As a result we expect to undertake different activities and supports for teachers and leaders in mathematics and statistics including: 
* coordinating a series of workshops to address national, regional and local needs of teachers and delivered as cluster workshops
* supporting teachers' personal development, in clusters, of: 
1. content knowledge and requirements of solving problems - pedagogy
2. curriculum knowledge
3. learning progressions within the learning area of mathematics and statistics
4. leadership
* assisting beginning teachers (PCTs) with meeting the requirements of the teaching standards for teacher registration
* supporting middle leaders (HoDs and HoFs)
* supporting the development of culturally responsive pedagogies
* using the Teaching as Inquiry spiral.

Please take the time to complete the survey as an individual, as a small group or as a faculty to assist in our planning for 2019 and 2020.
 
There are three surveys, please select the one(s) that is appropriate for you.
3. Network of Expertise Survey (Y11-13)  
 
Please complete the survey by 15th December 2018.
 
Many thanks
