All Power of Ten presenters have attended several Power of Ten workshops and at least one Power of Ten Trainers’ Workshop. Most of the trainers have presented workshops in other curriculum areas and several have worked at the district or university level. Many have post graduate degrees in curriculum and some have a specialty in mathematics education. The Power of Ten/Teachable Moment system can be melded with almost any other textbook or system. It is grounded on solid pedagogical principles and the trainers often regard other systems or ideas as strategies that may work in some circumstances but not in others. Therefore, there is no set way that a Power of Ten workshop can be delivered. Presenters must espouse their own beliefs in the context of the Power of Ten/Teachable Moment system. If presenters do not do this they may well sacrifice some of their own beliefs and principles and their presentations will lack authenticity and enthusiasm.
This is why all workshops are negotiated directly with the presenter. Each presenter brings different experience and it is important that the booking school or district understand who they are booking and why their experience is relevant. Similarly each presenter sets his/her own honorarium (presently between $500 and $1000).
Naturally the school or district will need to cover the presenter’s expenses. Expenses may include:
• Travel including air, ferry, taxis and/or mileage at the district rate.
• Meals on route and before and after (during the workshop the school provides the lunch).
• Release time from teaching duties (the school or district will often have to contact the presenter’s district prior to the workshop)
• Copying if the presenter is required to bring copies.
