This month: The Teaching Channel

Getting started

This year's professional development program sponsored by our district's i3 grant comes in a monthly cycle of three "waves" — a newsletter (and this is the first!), a webinar (see more below), and a live face-to-face professional development session. Click on the image below to see a brief explanation.

Teaching Channel & Reflective Practice

The Teaching Channel is an online video library of inspiring and effective teaching practices across the country. The Teaching Channel is designed to revolutionize how teachers learn so we can improve our students' achievement. Educate Texas is the first education support organization in Texas to forge a partnership with the Teaching Channel. Teachers—and quality teaching—are the critical element in ensuring that all students have a rigorous educational experience that prepares them for college and career. The Teaching Channel provides teachers and administrators with high quality, accessible, and on-demand examples of teaching and learning.
