Indiana Standards Bootcamps are three-day intensive summer trainings offered in both math and ELA for K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 grade bands, focused on the most challenging standards for each content area. Indiana Standards Bootcamps are made possible by the generous support of the Mind Trust and are free of charge to Indianapolis educators. Over the course of the three-day training, teachers will engage as learners in a series of tasks to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the expectations of the grade-level standards. In ELA sessions, participants will analyze the targeted standards, identify challenging concepts and work through them together. They will also discuss the progression, distinctions, and relationships of standards within and across grades, and analyze the intended depth of the standards. Teachers will grow their expertise in reading, comprehending, and analyzing complex informational texts and text sets. In math sessions, participants will work through a series of aligned tasks that build in rigor. For each task, teachers will do the math themselves and identify the key mathematical understandings, common misconceptions, and standards aligned to the task. They will also explore the preceding standards and skills that are required for success on the task. Through deepening their own content knowledge of the focus standards and common challenges, all participants will be better prepared to support students in the standards covered.
