During the upcoming school year, Technology and Innovation in Education (TIE), in partnership with the South Dakota Department of Education (SD DOE), will offer regional English Language Arts (ELA), Math and Science Learning Power Institutes. These institutes will immerse Grade 6-12 instructors in hands-on strategies designed to impact student learning and prepare students for rigorous coursework, including Advanced Placement classes and other courses that requires critical thinking skills.


Through funding available from TIE and the SDDOE, we are able to offer the onsite institutes free of charge. Participants choosing to take the institutes for graduate credit will be responsible for fees and will be required to participate in follow up online activities.

Contact: June Preszler,, (605) 431-8009

Graduate credit will be available.

Math Institute: Turn student aspirations into classroom realities with the Mathematics Assessment Program (MAP) which aims to bring to life the Common Core State Standards (CCSSM). The institutes will feature the Teaching for Robust Understanding of Mathematics (TRU Math) scheme which characterizes the five critical dimensions of mathematically productive classrooms. Featured materials will include Classroom Challenges, lessons featuring the formative assessment processes; the TRU Math Rubric, a tool to measure classroom performance along six critically important dimensions of classroom activity and the TRU Scoring Guide, instructions for assigning scores when using the TRU Math Rubric.

Rapid City: Friday, Nov. 14, University Center, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Aberdeen: Friday, Nov. 21, Northern State College Student Center, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
