In their work together, a group of Boston Teacher Residency coaches and their early-career teachers developed and honed many great ideas, tools, and resources that worked for students in Boston. The coaches wanted a way to curate and share these good ideas efficiently, and so BTRGrad.org was born. Here you will find tools culled from classrooms across the city, written up by the coaching team with clear instructions and suggestions, ready to use or adapt. Welcome! Please start exploring.

Founded in 2003, Boston Teacher Residency (BTR) recruits a diverse set of talented college graduates, career changers, and community members of all ages and gives them tools to make an immediate impact in BPS classrooms. BTR combines a year-long classroom apprenticeship with master's level coursework designed with Boston's students and curriculum in mind. Graduates commit to teach for at least three years in Boston schools, and BTR supports them over that time as they hone their teaching practice. BTR is run by Boston Plan for Excellence and is proud to be an AmeriCorps service program.
