National Professional Development


Linda Levi, Director, CGI Math Teacher Leader Center, linda.levi@cgimath-tlc.org.

  • CGI Math Teacher Leader Center (CGI-TLC) offers CGI Professional
    Development to teachers nation-wide.  The CGI PD
    Seminars offered through CGI-TLC are based on over 30 years
    of CGI research on children’s mathematical thinking and teacher
    growth. Based on this research, CGI-TLC offers the
    following CGI seminars:

    • CGI K-2 for Kindergarten through second grade teachers with
      a content focus on Number, Base Ten Concepts, Operations,
      Equations and Algebraic Thinking.
    • CGI 3-6 for third through sixth grade teachers with a content
      focus on Number, Base Ten Concepts, Fractions, Decimals,
      Operations, Equations and Algebraic Thinking.
      Introduction of CGI This 3-day seminar gives teachers
      an opportunity to start using CGI in their classrooms. It is
      possible to add distance-learning sessions to the CGI Intro
      Seminar in order to enhance teachers’ use of CGI with their
      students.
    • CGI for Administrators – Administrators are welcome and
      encouraged to attend our seminars alongside
      their teachers.  The CGI for Administrators seminar is designed
      to provide additional information on supporting CGI within a
      school.  If administrators are unable to attend CGI PD with
      their teachers, we add a “CGI Overview” to this seminar.  This
      seminar runs for 1 – 3 days.
  • Consistent with research on teacher growth, we offer three
    years of CGI Professional Development for our CGI K-
    2 and CGI 3-5 seminars.  There are 7 days of CGI Professional
    Development for each year of these seminars.
