2014-15 SCHOOL TEAM TRAINING SERIES

This training is designed for a school team of teachers to attend, and then take back to teachers in their buildings. Teachers may choose from one of three tracks and commit to attending three meetings in the summer, fall and winter. The training is optional and offered free of charge to Tennessee educators.
  • Preparing Students for Success in Math: This series will focus on how mathematical ideas are developed as students progress through the grades. Understanding learning progressions will allow teachers to build on previous understandings and focus on the mathematics critical for success in future grades. We will dive into the most challenging and important content areas to deepen content knowledge and expectations. This is designed for a team of learning leaders from each school and designed for redelivery to all math teachers in grades 3-11.

  • Preparing Students for Success in Literacy: This series will focus on instructional strategies that will support student success in analytic reading and writing. We will dive deeply into the research-based practices that support effective evidence-centered writing. This is designed for a team of learning leaders from each school and for redelivery to all English language arts (ELA), science, social studies, and career and technical education (CTE) teachers 3-11.

  • Preparing Students for Success in Early Grades: This dedicated training series for pre-K-2 will focus on deepening teacher understanding of developmentally appropriate, rigorous expectations for pre-K-2 in reading and math and instructional strategies that will support student success. This is designed for a team of learning leaders from each school and designed for redelivery to all pre-K-2 teachers.
