The purpose of the Academy is to develop teacher trainers who will then engage with their colleagues within their regional alliance in CCRS professional development. We are looking for teachers who have some experience with standards-based initiatives and with coaching/facilitating/mentoring to participate in this exciting opportunity.
The Academy is designed around a very hands-on and interactive approach to conceptually understanding the standards, lesson plan development and classroom application. Interested instructors are strongly encouraged to talk about the Academy with their program director regarding the time commitment involved and compensation. Programs will be paid for each teacher’s participation in the Academy and follow-up training.
While the integration of CCRS into our classrooms will take place over the next few years, Teacher Trainers are only expected to commit to the 2014,2015 school year. Please consider joining us in this CCRS professional development program. We look forward to hearing from you.
