Teaching the teachers

HOPKINTON

An unusual math class last week in Hopkinton. Teachers were teaching teachers, the Christian Science Monitor reports today.

The US Department of Education sponsored the classes, which were hosted at EMC Corp. Fourteen such free free workshops this summer are part of the Teacher-to-Teacher Initiative in which teachers get practical ideas from their peers whose methods have proven effective.

The department is hoping to improve the quality of instruction.
