E&H Awarded Math Teaching Grant

Posted by Monica Hoel
The College has received a grant for more than $80,000 to serve teachers in Bristol, Smyth County and Washington County (Va.) school divisions.

Emory & Henry College has been awarded a grant from the Virginia Department of Education to help area school division increase the content knowledge and sharpen the classroom skills of teachers of mathematics.

Emory & Henry was awarded an $82,188 Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) grant to serve 40 teachers in Bristol, Smyth County and Washington County school divisions.

The grant helps Emory & Henry provide high-quality professional development to teachers in an effort to reduce achievement gaps in math while raising achievement of all students.

The 2015-16 MSP grant program is designed to provide up to three years of support and services to schools and teachers. The competitive grants were given for professional development proposals supporting implementation of Virginia’s mathematics and science Standards of Learning (SOL).

The professional development teachers will receive through the funded partnerships will equip them with the confidence that comes from knowing their subject matter and knowing how to present it in ways that engage students and inspire critical thinking.
