The Department of Mathematics at California State University, Fresno in collaboration with San Joaquin Valley Mathematics Project (SJVMP) and the Mathematics and Science Teacher Initiative (MSTI), offers a unique opportunity for elementary school teachers. Learn about Cognitively Guided Instruction, a research-based approach to teaching mathematics, that focuses on understanding children's mathematical thinking and how to make instructional decisions to help students learn mathematics with understanding.

  • Five days of intensive hands-on learning through activities and demonstration classes for elementary mathematics teachers to help implement a CGI approach to teaching mathematics.
  • Intensive learning experience through challenging mathematical and pedagogical task in enjoyable environment.
  • Deepen your understanding of problem solving, strategies for solving problems, and analyzing student mathematical knowledge.
  • Work with incoming 4th-6th graders to learn about their mathematical thinking and to deepen your ability to ask questions and analyze student's mathematical thinking.
  • Observe demonstration CGI lessions taught by highly effective CGI teachers.
  • Co-plan and implement CGI lessions with students in the upper elementary (4th-6th) grades.
  • Change the ay yout think about teaching mathematics.
  • Optional 6th day of professional development to reflect on your learning and begin planning how you will implement CGI strategies into your instruction in the upcoming academic year.
  • Earn an optional 2 or 3 units of Fresno State professional development credit (cost $75/unit).
  • School/District Support: Registration fee $725 (before May 15th), $825 (after May 15th).
