2009 MMSI Summer Institute for Experienced AP© Teachers

Please note this event is not free for all participants. 

See below for Registration Fees. 


About MMSI
The Massachusetts Math & Science Initiative (MMSI) is a grant funded education non-profit organization dedicated  to increasing student enrollment in mathematics, science and English AP© courses and improving student performance as reflected by an increase in the number of qualifying scores (3, 4 or 5 on a 1 to 5 scale).  MMSI is equally committed to raising standards and achievement in math, science, and English in middle schools, and helping school systems to co-align curriculum and instruction around MCAS and College Ready/AP/Pre-AP standards.  MMSI provides extensive training for AP and Pre-AP teachers through its AP Training and Awards Program and its Great Schools Network Initiative.  The goal of our inaugural MMSI Summer Institute is to provide experienced AP teachers with world class instructional seminars designed to deepen content knowledge and enhance effective pedagogy.  We hope very much that you enjoy your experience!


Who Can Attend
The 2009 MMSI Summer Institute for Experienced  Teachers is open to all teachers within the Massachusetts Math & Science Initiative's (MMSI)  Advance Placement Training and Awards Program  (APTAP) who have been teaching an AP© course for a few years and have attended  inexperienced AP© Summer Institutes in recent years. 

Following registration of MMSI APTAP teachers, registration will open to teachers from MMSI's Great Schools Network and other schools outside both of these programs.

Schools will appreciate the site in Waltham because its relatively central location in MA will make it an easy commute for Massachusetts' teachers. Also, experienced teachers will enjoy the content which goes above and beyond typical summer institutes.

MMSI Summer Institute Experience

Participants in the MMSI Summer Institute will enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Bentley University Campus, the excellent instruction in the courses, and fun activities and events  in the afternoons and evenings, such as softball games, yoga, book signings, and cookouts.
