Westminster's Drinko Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning Hosting Education Seminars

The Westminster College Drinko Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning will host a series of education clinics.  The 2004 Mathematics Coaches Clinic, which includes dinner, is scheduled Wednesday, Nov. 17, from 4-6:15 p.m. in the Lakeview Room of the McKelvey Campus Center.

 This session, which is the second session on mathematics, will be led by Tim LaVan, mathematics specialist for the Oil City School District, a member of the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) Math Advisory Committee that developed and reviewed the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) tests.  His program will focus on what specific adjustments should be made in all mathematics courses to integrate eligible content and anchor assessments; and the relationship between the math coach, the teacher, and the principal that allows the coach to facilitate these critical adjustments and work to support the teacher's efforts.

The Drinko Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning was developed to advance world-class teaching at Westminster and enrich K-12 education through outreach programs for area educators.

 The event is sponsored by the Tri-State Area School Study Council Department of Administrative Policy Studies at the School of Education of the University of Pittsburgh in collaboration with the Drinko Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at Westminster College.

Several other programs are scheduled in the coming months.  They include: Developing a High Performance School or School System dinner Nov. 23; Science Literacy lunch, Jan. 20; School Law Update lunch, March 17; and Reading and Writing Across the Curriculum dinner, April 7.
