Literacy Design Collaborative/Math Design Collaborative (LDC/MDC) Opportunities for FREE professional development for ELA, science, social studies, mathematics, and career tech education teachers will be available through a partnership of the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE), Education Service Cooperatives, and STEM Centers. This partnership has allowed for professional learning focused on the Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) and Mathematics Design Collaborative (MDC). The Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) offers a fresh approach to incorporating literacy into middle and high school content areas. The Mathematics Design Collaborative (MDC) focuses on building student understanding of mathematics concepts by working through problems, rather than memorizing formulas and plugging them into a page of workbook problems.
