IMSA Innovation Showcase: Lesson Plan

The Illinois Math and Science Academy has been a resource for teacher professional development and we recognize that Illinois teachers have amazing talent. This year, we are eager to invite educators from across Illinois to participate in our first IMSA Innovation Showcase: Lesson Plan competition in which educators from all backgrounds can submit their best lesson plan that displays innovation in their teaching. Selected participants will be invited to an award ceremony where winning lesson plans will be displayed for a night of appreciation. Finalists will be awarded a $100 gift card and semi-finalists will receive an IMSA swag bag.

We look forward to reviewing your submission!
