This spring the seminar emphasis has been on teacher professional development, with a focus on the upcoming activites with the partnering districts in relation to teaching mathematics to ELLs and issues of race, ethnicity, and equity.
- University of Illinois at Chicago Spring 2005 Seminars
This spring UIC has used its local seminars to read and discuss articles across the different disciplines with a particular emphasis on research of language and mathematics and on teaching mathematics to ELLs.
- The University of New Mexico Spring 2005 Seminars
This spring the seminar emphasis has been on defining the research agenda (in terms of both local studies at UNM and contributions to CEMELA-wide research questions). Another area of emphasis has been the professional development goals for the upcoming summer institute for teachers in Albuquerque.
