STEPS will provide an opportunity for secondary teachers to participate in activities that focus on best lessons from the middle school
mathematics classroom. Six 25-minute sessions will be repeated five times so that a participant may attend five sessions in any order.

                                                                                                                                                 SECONDARY
Participants who do not want to attend every STEPS session may enter and leave STEPS five minutes before the hour and half-hour during
the breaks between sessions. Sessions begin on every hour and half-hour.
