The Buck Institute for Education proposes to engage the Oakland Unified and San Jose Unified school districts in a two-phase Need Sensing and Planning Process aimed at creating a deeper learning professional development program for mathematics teachers. This Bay Area grant would explore the feasibility of a blended online/offline, OER-supported approach to teaching math that emphasizes deeper learning.

Grants to this Grantee
for the development of a deeper learning math curriculum
The Institute proposes to develop a state-of-the-art open curriculum for Common Core standards in middle school math. Richer and far more applied than any math curriculum in the market, it will support all aspects of deeper learning.
for an online portal for teacher professional development in project-based learning
The Buck Institute provides professional development to more than 10,000 teachers a year. Renewed support would further this initiative to create and evaluate an online portal for teacher professional development (PBLU.org) dedicated to project-based learning and Web technology. The emphasis of this tie-off grant is to improve instruction in deeper learning and the Common Core.
