CEMELA Fellows are graduate students and post-doctoral fellows who engage in Center-related teaching and research.
Join us! As a CEMELA fellow, you will:
- Engage in a program of study and research in mathematics education that addresses issues of language and culture, particularly as they relate to the teaching and learning of mathematics for Latino students.
- Participate in “CEMELA Schools,” which will bring together CEMELA Fellows from the four partnering universities, CEMELA faculty, and other scholars for an intensive, highly interactive learning experience.
- Teach or assist in mathematics teacher education courses, at the preservice and inservice levels.
- Conduct research in the various CEMELA settings, with students, teachers, preservice teachers, and parents.
- Have the opportunity to attend and present at national conferences.
The common core
Every CEMELA graduate student will complete:
- Two mathematics courses on school mathematics from an advanced perspective.
- Two core courses in mathematics education grounded on CEMELA's theoretical framework (sociocultural theory and language).
- Attendance to and participation in the CEMELA Seminar. The Seminar provides an arena for the Fellows to talk about their research among themselves and with CEMELA Faculty. Approximately once a moth we connect the four CEMELA sites via video-conference to have a cross-site seminar.
- At least 6 of the 10 Short Courses developed by CEMELA Faculty (3 Short Courses equal 1 typical graduate level course). (Some of these Short Courses take place during the CEMELA School.)
- Attendance and participation in the CEMELA School. These Schools take place yearly (rotating across the four sites). They are five-day intensive experiences, which bring together Center Fellows from the four sites for Short Courses, mathematics content workshops, and research working groups.
- One course on issues related to the education of Latino/a students.
- Teaching and research internships that will provide graduate students with experiences in teacher preparation, professional development, and research in different CEMELA contexts.
