"Beyond the Workshop" Offers Online Professional Development for Charter Teachers
August 23, 2013 A new website has launched offering online reading and math strategy courses for teachers. This resource was developed through a three-year pilot project funded by the U.S. Department of Education Charter School Program Leadership grant. CCSA participated in the pilot and 30 California teachers completed online modules and provided feedback to develop these courses.
These are some of the comments from teachers who piloted the program:
"This course has definitely opened my eyes. I love the resources that I can use in my classroom."
"I see how important it is to implement problem solving in my classroom with the common core standards for math. I am excited to introduce my students to these strategies and guide them to work in groups effectively."
"I really enjoyed this workshop. I received so many new ideas that I have been excited to implement in the classroom. This is one of the best professional development experiences I have ever had."
There are reading and math strategies courses starting this fall, winter and spring.
